PROVO -- BYU doubles duo Thomas Shubert and Spencer Smith will make an appearance on the CBS "Early Show" Wednesday as part of a showcase of the ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships.

Shubert and Salt Lake City native Smith, who won the Mountain Region doubles final in Provo Oct. 26, will be interviewed by 5-time Emmy Award winner and weather anchor Dave Price. The Cougars were two of 12 athletes chosen to participate in the show.

The show can be viewed from 8 to 9 a.m. MT on channel 2.
