University at Albany Vice President and Director of Athletics Lee McElroy announced on Thursday, Oct. 22 the school's basketball television schedule for the 2009-10 season.
The Great Danes will appear twice as part of the America East Conference television package. MSG Plus Network will air both regular-season games against conference-rival Stony Brook. The two teams meet Jan. 24 on Long Island and Feb. 19 at SEFCU Arena.
Time Warner Cable (TW3) is scheduled to air five home dates, highlighted by the Big Purple Growl doubleheader on Saturday, Feb. 6. The women's team meets America East opponent Vermont at 4:30 p.m., while the men tangle with Boston University at 7:00 p.m. TW3 broadcasts also feature Yale (Jan. 3), Vermont (Jan. 10), Hartford (Jan. 27) and New Hampshire (Feb. 9). Yale is traveling to the Capital Region for the time since the 1999-2000 campaign. Vermont shared last year's conference regular-season title.
Rodger Wyland and former UAlbany basketball standout and college head coach John Quattrocchi will work together on Time Warner broadcasts for the second consecutive year. Wyland is the sports director at WNYT-TV (NewsChannel 13) and the host of Fox Sport 980's Big Board Sports every weekday morning.
In addition, UAlbany previously announced ESPNU dates with defending national champion North Carolina (Dec. 30) and Syracuse (Nov. 9). The Great Danes are making their first trip to the Carrier Dome since December and the season opener is part of the 2K Sports Classic, benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer. UAlbany's women will also meet Hartford (Jan. 24) on the Connecticut Sports Network (CTSN).
