KOKOMO, Ind. — Cougar sports fans won't have to miss one second of the action this season, with the launch of a new Indiana University Kokomo athletics website today.
Jace Thompson, men's basketball coach, said the upgrades allow for more interaction with students and fans.
"We're focused on the athletes and what we're doing with the athletic department. We can text out scores, and we're going to be able to show live broadcasts of the games," he said. "Our fans can get instant updates on our teams."
The website, www.iukcougars.com, includes schedules for women's volleyball, men's and women's cross country, and men's basketball teams, as well as stats for players and teams.
It also includes interactive features, such as an opt-in texting service for breaking news alerts and links to social media sites. When teams play away games, there will be links to radio and/or television broadcasts.
In addition, the site features videos and pictures from games and community service projects.
"We have a dedicated fan base, and this will generate energy among them," Thompson said. "It will give the Cougar Crazies a place to show their enthusiasm for our teams."
Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
