Penn State Basketball Announces Television Schedule

The Penn State men’s basketball team will appear on television at least 22 times during the 2013-14 season and will host a scrimmage next Saturday, the team announced yesterday.

The Nittany Lions television schedule, which has yet to be finalized, breaks down like this (home games in bold):

  • ESPN3: LaSalle, Marshall
  • ESPNU: Pittsburgh, Purdue, Nebraska, Iowa, Nebraska, Northwestern
  • Big Ten: Princeton, Mount St. Mary’s, Michigan State, Illinois, Minnesota, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio State, Purdue, Illinois, Indiana
  • ESPN/ESPN2: Michigan State, Ohio State
  • TBA: UPenn, St. John’s, Georgia Tech/Mississippi, Duquesne, Wisconsin, Minnesota

Penn State will also play four games on BTN2Go’s Big Ten Digital Network: Northwood (exhibition), Bucknell, Longwood, and Monmouth.

Every conference game the Nittany Lions play will be televised, on either Big Ten Network, ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPNU. The possible exception could be Penn State’s home finale against Wisconsin, which will either be shown on BTN or CBS.

The television schedule for the Barclays Center Classic match-ups against St. John’s and either Georgia Tech or Mississippi has yet to be announced. However, last year’s inaugural Barclays Center Classic game between Kentucky and Maryland was televised on ESPN, so it’s not a stretch to anticipate that a major network will host the tournament.

In other hoops news, the team will hold an intrasquad scrimmage at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 12. The Blue-White Scrimmage, which will be held the morning of the football team’s homecoming game with Michigan, is free to the public. During the game, fans “will be able to participate in contests on the court and win Penn State basketball prizes,” and after the game, players will sign autographs.
