BLACKSBURG, Va. – Virginia Tech and the Atlantic Coast Conference have released updated times and television and streaming video coverage for the 2012-13 men’s basketball season. Times and television coverage for the 18 ACC games were released earlier in the summer, along with dates for the non-conference games.
The Hokies will have at least 24 games televised, plus seven more games that will be shown exclusively on ESPN3. All 18 of the Hokies’ ACC games will be televised this season. All but one of the Hokies’ games this season (Dec. 22 vs. Bradley in the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic) will be either televised or streaming on-line on either ESPN3 or WatchESPN.com.
All games in the ACC Tournament will be televised by either the ACC Network or one of the ESPN family of networks. As a whole, the ACC will have a league-record 201 nationally-televised games and a total of 327 overall games televised, also a new ACC record.
As part of the ACC’s contract with ESPN, all games televised by either ESPN or ESPN2 will also be shown on either ESPN3, WatchESPN.com or the WatchESPN app. These entities will also show all ACC games broadcast by either the ACC Network or regional sports networks.
Virginia Tech will open the 2012-13 season on Saturday, Nov. 10 against ETSU in Cassell Coliseum. The game will tip-off at 2 p.m. and will be available on ESPN3.
