Someone passed along this link, which includes Raycom’s ACC and SEC regional broadcast schedule for basketball this winter.
Maryland checks in seven times, including a Sunshine State swing in early January (at Miami and at Florida State within four days).
There are also four Saturday afternoon games, which are pretty much always welcome.
Here’s an updated schedule, with a few notes afterward:
Nov. 14: vs. Bucknell
Nov. 18: vs. Youngstown State
Nov. 21: vs. Vermont
Nov. 27: vs. Michigan State in Old Spice Classic, 7, ESPN
Nov. 28: vs. Gonzaga/Oklahoma State in Old Spice Classic
Nov. 30: vs. Tennessee/Siena/Georgetown/Wichita State in Old Spice Classic
Dec. 3: vs. Michigan, 7:30, ESPNU
Dec. 7: vs. George Washington (BB&T Classic-Verizon Center), 7:30
Jan. 3: vs. Charlotte
TBA (probably wouldn’t be later than the first week of January): vs. Bryant
Jan. 10: vs. Georgia Tech, noon, Raycom
Jan. 14: at Miami, 9, Raycom
Jan. 17: at Florida State, noon, Raycom
Jan. 20: vs. Virginia, 8, Raycom
Jan. 31: vs. Miami, noon or 2, Raycom
Feb. 3: at North Carolina, 8, Raycom
Feb. 14: vs. Virginia Tech, 4, Raycom
In case you’re wondering, here are the conference games remaining to be sprinkled in on other outlets (the ESPNs, Fox Sports Net, Comcast, etc.): Duke (home and away); Virginia (away), Boston College (home), North Carolina (home), N.C. State (away), Wake Forest (home), Clemson (away), Georgia Tech (away).
And even though you’re probably not wondering, here’s how Maryland’s conference games have been distributed in ACC country since the 1999-2000 season based on preseason schedules (Ray: Raycom, among other names; FSN: Fox Sunday night package; RSN: Regional cable broadcast):
|Year||Ray ||FSN ||ESPN ||ESPN2 ||CBS ||ABC ||RSN || ESPNU ||None |
So seven Raycom appearances is right in line with the last few years. And just to answer the question that would bug me if I saw this chart, the last Maryland ACC game that was untelevised was March 1, 2000, at Cole Field House against Florida State.
