America East to Feature Four Men’s Basketball Games on ESPN3 in 2013-14



CAMBRIDGE, MASS.- The America East Conference announced Tuesday that defending league champion UAlbany will be featured on ESPN3 four times in the 2013-14 conference regular season.

Will Brown’s squad will appear on the ESPN family of networks against Vermont at SEFCU Arena on Feb. 1, at UMBC on Feb. 12 at 7 p.m., against Maine at SEFCU Arena on Feb. 15 at 7 p.m., and at Binghamton on Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. The league championship, hosted by the highest-remaining seed, will also be broadcast on ESPN2.

“The partnership with ESPN is exciting for our conference and program,” said Brown.  “We look forward to making four America East appearances on ESPN this upcoming season.  Hopefully the partnership continues to grow and develop as we move forward as a conference.”

UAlbany’s four America East ESPN3 appearances ranks them third in the league in number of showings, behind Stony Brook and Vermont who will both appear five times. The Great Danes could make another appearance on March 2 in the wildcard slot when they play at Stony Brook.

In addition to their appearances on the league schedule, the Great Danes can also be seen on ESPN3 at Pittsburgh on Dec. 31 at 1 p.m., from the Petersen Events Center.

In the largest T.V., package ever for the league, all ESPN3 games can also be seen on the WatchESPN app, which is accessible through smartphones, tablets as well as Xbox LIVE and Apple TV.

The Great Danes host NJIT in their first home game on Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. Men’s basketball season and individual tickets are now on sale.

The UAlbany men’s basketball team opens the 2013-14 season against cross-town rival Siena at the Times Union Center on Nov. 8 at 7 p.m.
