Five men's games and two women's games will be televised live on CPTV Sports, and will be available throughout Connecticut.
"We are excited to once again partner with CPTV Sports for the second straight year," Director of Athletics Paul Schlickmann said on Monday. "CPTV Sports provides us the opportunity to extend and enhance our reach to our fans throughout the state of Connecticut. We received tremendous feedback last season when we teamed up with CPTV Sports for seven broadcasts, and we are looking forward to seven more in the next two months. This is a great chance for all of the alumni in the state to watch our basketball teams perform during conference play."
