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

CBS 
ABC

ESPNU

2000904110001
2001804021100

2003642111100
2004542212000

2006653010100
2007741101110
2008 
742101010

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.
