Indiana Pacers announcers Chris Denari and Quinn Buckner of FOX Sports Indiana will have a busy schedule next weekend as they call three games in three different venues and two different cities in a span of just 24 hours.
The full workload comes as they participate in a special event, Basketball Day in Indiana, which aims to celebrate the sport across multiple skill levels including high school, college and the NBA.
Denari and Buckner will first call the Pacers as they play against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday, December 9th. They will then travel back to Indiana to cover a high school game on Saturday afternoon at Southport High School in Indianapolis. It’s not often you see two NBA announcers covering a game at the high school level, let alone one which is sandwiched between two NBA games. The duo will then return to action on Saturday night by calling the Pacers as they host the Portland Trail Blazers.
Basketball Day in Indiana will cover a total of five games (three high school games, one college game and one NBA game) all day on Saturday. As the day honors the sport, it’s only appropriate that Denari, who is from Indiana, and Buckner, a basketball icon for the Indiana Hoosiers, play a role.
Fans interested in watching Denari, Buckner and Basketball Day in Indiana can tune into Fox Sports Indiana next weekend.
