Maryland men’s basketball’s TV schedule and network affiliation was announced Thursday afternoon. The Terps will play at least 23 nationally televised games this season.
The highlights of the schedule come in back-to-back weekends when the Terps will play home games against Michigan State and Wisconsin on CBS. The Big Ten’s new television partner, FS1, will televise seven games. The Big Ten’s other two television partners, ESPN and BTN will televise the rest of Maryland’s games on their family of networks.
There’s no earth-shattering news here, but it’s just another sign that basketball season is getting closer. That’s exciting, even if we’re in the midst of football season.
