Monumental Sports Network to Broadcast Eight Live Games during Annual ‘Basketball Day in the DMV’ Presented by CarMax 

The annual “Basketball Day in the DMV” presented by CarMax is held on January 20 and broadcasts on Monumental Sports Network. The event showcases top high school, college and NBA matchups. This Saturday’s lineup includes eight live basketball games featuring top Washington D.C. talent representing the National Capital region. This celebration of hoops is presented in partnership with the Washington Wizards NBA franchise. Look for a mix of five high school games, two collegiate games, and the final game of the evening between the Wizards and San Antonio Spurs, lead by the Victor Wembanyama, the first pick of the 2023 NBA Draft. The Sports Techie community blog is virtually onboard with the day’s “Behan Strong” fund raiser for Compassionate Care ALS. Monumental is leading the local media digital way for the greater Washington region.

Basketball Day in the DMV

“Basketball Day in the DMV” represents a special opportunity for college and high school athletes to showcase their abilities on a major platform, as more than three million households are included in Monumental Sports Network’s broadcast halo. 

Local basketball fans can watch the games through their Monumental Pay TV subscription, on, or by downloading the Monumental streaming app on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV and using an eligible TV Everywhere log-in.

“The Greater Washington region has a rich basketball tradition at all levels and we are honored to showcase all our local hoops talent during ‘Basketball Day in the DMV’,” said Friday Abernethy, General Manager, Monumental Sports Network. “While many people are familiar with Monumental Sports Network because of our professional sports team coverage of the Washington Wizards, Capitals, and Mystics, elevating local sports and providing a platform for our talented local athletes is a core value for our organization and we are proud to use our new network and digital assets to foster a sense of community at all levels of athletics across our region.”

Monumental is producing and airing the five high school games at no cost to the schools and each game will include a professional broadcast team similar to those featured at a Wizards or Capitals game, including on-air play-by-play, color commentary, and sideline reporting. Announcers include elite Monumental on-air talent like Christy Winters-Scott, Jimmy Patsos, Wes Hall, and Chase Hughes.


The high school games will feature select boys and girls basketball teams from throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia (the DMV), including Sandy Spring (MD), Good Counsel (MD), Largo (MD), South Lakes (VA), Bullis (MD), Holy Child (MD), St. John’s College (D.C.), Bishop O’Connell (VA), Hayfield (VA), and Patriot (VA). The broadcast schedule includes four games from the Capitol Hoops Challenge taking place at South Lakes High School in Reston, VA, as well as one game from Capital One Arena which will be played at 1:00 p.m. Towson University (MD) men’s basketball and George Washington University (D.C.) women’s basketball will take part in the college basketball broadcasts.
