ESPNU (And, The New TV Home Of Boston College Basketball

via <a href=""></a>

Not sure how I missed this, but Boston College recently added this year's TV broadcast info onto the yearly men's hoops schedule. If you needed any more proof of the low expectations surrounding this year's squad, look no further than the hoops broadcast schedule.

In the first year of the ACC's new TV media rights contract with ESPN, the Eagles are on ESPN or ESPN2 just once the entire year ... for BC's January 12 game hosting  the Clemson Tigers.

A total of 12 of the Eagles 30 regular season games will be aired on ESPNU or The ESPNU games include Saint Louis in the opening round of the 76 Classic (11/24), Penn State (11/30), at Virginia (1/26), at Georgia Tech (2/4), and at Virginia Tech (2/12). Even BC's February 19 home game against Duke couldn't get on ESPN or even the Deuce, and has been relegated to ESPNU.

This season's / internet specials have a very local flavor and include games against UMass (11/21), Boston University (12/3), at Providence (12/8), Harvard (12/29), Rhode Island (1/2) and Florida State (2/8).

Twelve other games will be shown on local TV, either TV38 in Boston or NESN. The only other games that won't be televised at all this season (other than last night's win over New Hampshire) are BC's next game at Holy Cross (11/18) and the Eagles' home game against Sacred Heart (12/21).

If your cable provider doesn't offer, now would probably be a good time to call them up and figure out what it would take for them to get you access.
