      Hi Jennie,

      Thanks for the comment and question. We don’t live stream sub-varsity games simply because there is only so many hours we have to broadcast games. BNN is a student-run news organization and an extension of the Electronic Journalism class at BMU. Students are volunteering any time that is outside of classroom hours like basketball games are. As far as writing about sub-varsity games, we follow the same guidelines as other news outlets do. The local papers don’t write about sub-varsity games and neither do we. Again, there is only so much time to cover sports in our area. BNN is dedicated to providing news coverage for the greater BMU community but we can’t cover it all. Thanks again for your comment and questions.
