LOS ANGELES - The UCLA Athletic Department has announced the television coverage and game times for its 2009-10 men's basketball schedule. It is highlighted by 26 televised games on five different networks, including the possibility of two more games to be televised as wild card selections.
The Bruins will make 15 appearances as part of the Pacific-10 Conference's television package; 10 national telecasts on Fox Sports Net, three on CBS and two on ESPN. Non-conference highlights of the FSN schedule include the Dec. 6 home game versus Kansas and the Dec. 12 Wooden Classic contest versus Mississippi State. The ESPN selections include the first game of ESPN's 24-hour marathon to begin the season (Nov. 16 versus Cal State Fullerton) and a College GameDay contest at Washington (Feb. 20). UCLA has two additional opportunities for exposure when wildcard selections will be announced on Feb. 22, 2010.
In addition to the Pac-10's FSN package, eight more games will be televised locally as part of the Bruins' package on Prime Ticket and FS West in Los Angeles.
Additionally, the Bruins will make three appearances on the ESPN family of networks in conjunction with the 76 Classic in Anaheim (Nov. 26, 27 and 29), which is organized by ESPN. Those are in addition to the ESPN appearances versus Cal State Fullerton and Washington.
While all but one game time (excluding tournaments) has been set, the schedule is tentative and subject to change.
