 RAYCOM TO TELECAST OHIO STATE BASKETBALL GAMES
 CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Raycom, the nation's leading


independent sports programmer, will telecast 15 Ohio State University regular season games for 1991-92 basketball season.
 All-America forward Jimmy Jackson, a preseason favorite for Big Ten Player of the Year honors, looks to lead the Buckeyes to their second straight Big Ten title. Ranked sixth in "Basketball Digest's" Top 20 preseason poll, Ohio State is looking to defend last year's Big Ten conference title, which they shared with the Indiana Hoosiers. Senior Chris Jent will assume the forward position, and either 7-0 Bill Robinson or Lawrence Funderburke will step into the line-up as center. Senior point guard Mark Baker and freshmen Antonio Watson and Ricke Dudley are also expected to see playing time this season.
 Chuck Underwood will be the play-by-play announcer, with Bill Hosket providing the color commentary.
 Raycom, based in Charlotte with offices in New York, Chicago and Dallas, is a specialist in regional networks for college sports. Last year, Raycom carried 334 college basketball games on an over-the-air network covering 80 percent of the country.
