BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland and MASN, the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, will partner to broadcast three of the Greyhounds' home men's basketball games this season, part of at least eight games in 2014-2015 that will air on television.
MASN, the home of Major League Baseball's Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals, has a regional footprint from Pennsylvania to the Carolinas and is based in Baltimore. This season will mark the ninth year of the Loyola-MASN partnership to air games on the regional network.
In addition to the programming available on MASN, the Greyhounds will be televised on Fox Sports 2, Fox College Sports, the new American Sports Network and the ACC Regional Network (Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. region).
The Greyhounds open the season Friday, Nov. 14, in Lubbock, Texas, where Head Coach G.G. Smith will face his mentor and father, Tubby Smith, and Texas Tech University. The game will air nationally on Fox College Sports Central and in the Lone Star State on Fox Sports Southwest Plus.
Loyola makes its 2014-2015 MASN debut Wednesday, Nov. 19, when it hosts UMBC in Retiz Arena in a rematch of last year's overtime Greyhounds win in Catonsville, Maryland.
Two games over the next week will also be televised as the Greyhounds will head to Indianapolis to face Butler University on Saturday, Nov. 22, in a Fox Sports 2 broadcast. Loyola will then take on Syracuse University two days before Thanksgiving, Tuesday, Nov. 25, in the Carrier Dome. That contest will be broadcast on the ACC Regional Network and shown in the Baltimore-Washington area on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.
The 170th meeting between Loyola and Mount St. Mary's University will air on MASN's airwaves Saturday, Dec. 6.
As part of the network's affiliation with the Patriot League, Loyola will make its debut on the American Sports Network on Wednesday, Jan. 21, when it hosts Bucknell University. The Greyhounds will then be on ASN again Wednesday, Feb. 4, in a game at American University.
American Sports Network ("ASN"), a collegiate sports initiative broadcast on a number of Broadcast Group's television stations, launched in July and has entered into comprehensive sports rights agreements with a number of NCAA Division I conferences including the Patriot League. These local, live, exclusive games are broadcast in different regions of the country. Sinclair, which is based in the Baltimore area and owns television stations nationwide, will carry the games and original content as part of the primary program line-up (generally on the Company's CW and MyNet affiliates) or other affiliates.
A final game on MASN will dot the schedule Wednesday, Feb. 11, when the Greyhounds host Lafayette College in Patriot League action from Reitz Arena.
Additional Loyola games could be picked up later in February with the Patriot League's "flex games" on CBS Sports Network.
All of Loyola's home games, and all Patriot League road games will also be available digitally on the Patriot League Network powered by Campus Insiders. The digital network is available in HD, free of charge, on all computers, most mobile devices and many streaming television devices (Roku, Apple TV).
Campus Insiders will also feature two of the Greyhounds games with its feature productions, the Wednesday, Jan. 7, game against American and the Wednesday, Feb. 18, game at Bucknell.
