How To Watch To The Game

The game will be on the ACC Network. The list of ACC Network affiliates can be found here. There is no Boston affiliate covering the game.

Wait.

What?

Are you actually serious, ACC? The game isn’t on TV in Boston?

I know that the ACC Network historically shows games on My-38, which has scheduled two reruns of The Big Bang Theory and a local news simulcast so GOD FORBID WE PREEMPT THAT.

Other markets have it on their CW station. Boston’s CW station has reruns of Modern Family and a rerun of a show that no one has heard of nor cares about.

NESN, perhaps?

St. Joe’s v. UMass.

I’m an outspoken proponent of the A-10, but I can’t believe NESN wouldn’t want to show BC in its place.

I seriously cannot fathom that a BC basketball game is on the ACC Network and won’t be shown in Boston. That’s absurd

For those outside of the markets carrying the game, WHICH APPARENTLY IS BOSTON, the game can be found on WatchESPN.

How To Listen To The Game

The game will be broadcast around the Boston area on 850 WEEI-AM. The audio broadcast will also be streamed here on the Boston College athletics website.
