BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland men's lacrosse team will make five national television appearances during the 2010 season with three games on ESPNU and two more on the ECAC Lacrosse League Game of the Week package.
The Greyhounds' games on ESPNU will also be broadcast in the Baltimore area on WMAR-TV/ABC2. The ECAC Game of the Week can be seen in the Mid-Atlanic region on MASN.
"We are excited to have five games nationally televised this season," Loyola Head Coach Charley Toomey said. "I think it's great the commitment the ECAC has made to distribute our games on a national scale to promote the league, our schools and the sport to fans across the country. ESPNU and WMAR have been tremendous partners for lacrosse, as well, and their coverage of the sport is outstanding."
Loyola opens its television schedule with the first 2010 ECAC Game of the Week at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 20, when the Greyhounds host Air Force at the Ridley Athletic Complex.
The following week brings Towson to Ridley on Saturday, March 27, in a 12 p.m. game that will be broadcast live on WMAR/ABC2 in the Baltimore area. The game will be tape-delayed on ESPNU at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 28.
