Binghamton basketball teams to have four televised games this season

VESTAL, N.Y.--The America East Conference has released its 2002-03 basketball schedule and the Binghamton men’s and women’s basketball teams will have a combined total of four televised games this season. The men’s will have three home games televised while the women will have a road game aired. In the Binghamton area, the games will be carried by Empire Sports Network.

“This is great exposure for our program throughout New York as well as in the neighboring states,” athletic director Joel Thirer said. “We are delighted that these games can be seen by many of our alumni, fans and supporters.”

Binghamton’s men’s team will make its first television appearance on Sunday, Jan. 26 at home against New Hampshire at noon. The other two televised games will be against Boston on Sunday, Feb. 9 and against Northeastern on Sunday, Feb. 23 (both at noon).

The game against New Hampshire will mark the first time ever that an athletic event at West Gym has being televised regionally. Back when Binghamton was on the NCAA Division III level, WBNG-TV televised some of the men’s games locally.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to expose our program to all of our fans, families and potential recruits,” head coach Al Walker said. “This is another example of the tremendous commitment that the Binghamton administration is supplying to help our program become an elite team in the America East Conference.”

The Bearcats’ women’s team will have their Feb. 16 game at Maine televised. Tip off is scheduled for noon. It will mark the first time that a Binghamton women’s basketball has ever been televised.

“It’s really good, not just for the program but for the University to have this exposure,” head coach Laurie Kelly Kelly said. “It’s an exciting opportunity for the players and fans.”

NOTES: New England Sports Network (NESN) will air the games on Jan. 26, Feb. 9 and Feb. 16. MSG Network will air the Feb. 9 game and Fox Sports New York will air the Feb. 23 game.
