MOREHEAD - The Sean Woods Television Show returns to Lexington’s CWKYT on Sunday at 1 p.m.. It is available throughout the 2013-14 college basketball season on DIRECTV channel 14, DISH Network channel 28 and Time Warner Cable channel 99.

The first edition includes highlights of Morehead State’s 102-94 overtime win over Conference USA opponent Marshall and 74-61 victory at Atlantic Sun Conference foe Northern Kentucky. It also features footage of MSU at Big East Conference member Xavier.

The 30-minute program, which includes highlights, program insight from MSU’s head coach, player profiles and special guests, will air each Sunday from Nov. 24 through March 2 at 1 p.m. The only exception is Dec. 1, when the show starts at Noon.

Morehead State’s campus videographer, David Patrick, will continue to produce and host the show.

Woods, who has been associated with six Division I men’s basketball programs, is in his second season as the head coach at Morehead State. It is also his sixth season as a Division I head coach and 11th year of coaching at the collegiate level.

Woods guided the Eagles to a 15-18 overall record and 8-8 Ohio Valley Conference mark in 2012-13, despite inheriting a program with just four scholarship players. MSU also made its eighth straight OVC Tournament appearance in his first campaign.

Woods previously led Mississippi Valley State to 50 overall wins and 44 Southwestern Athletic Conference victories from 2008-12. The 2011-12 Delta Devils finished 21-13 overall, 17-1 in the SWAC, won the conference tournament and advanced to the school’s fifth-ever NCAA Tournament.

MVSU improved by 14 overall wins and 10 conference victories from his first season to his fourth. Woods was recognized as the 2011-12 SWAC Coach of the Year and earned the prestigious Ben Jobe Award, which honors the top minority coach in NCAA Division I men’s college basketball.

Woods played in 91 games at Kentucky from 1989-92. He was coached by Rick Pitino, Tubby Smith and Billy Donovan, who have all won national titles as head coaches. Woods, whose #11 jersey hangs in Rupp Arena, was later inducted into the UK Athletic Hall of Fame.

Woods may be best known as one of the “Unforgettables” from Kentucky’s 1992 East Regional final team. He scored 21 points against Duke in one of the NCAA Tournament’s most memorable games en route to All-Tournament Team honors.

In 2013, Woods was tabbed to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame’s Silver Anniversary Team. The group of honorees included several Division I college basketball players, plus six-time National Basketball Association All-Star Shawn Kemp.

Morehead State returns to action on Friday when it visits Pac-12 Conference powerhouse UCLA. Tip-off is slated for 11 p.m., and the game will be shown live on the Pac-12 Networks. The Eagles will play four contests on their West Coast trip.
