The Athletic Department released details on TV coverage and game times for the 2010-11 men's basketball schedule. We are going to have 27 televised games on four different networks, including the possibility of two more games to be televised as "wild card selections". Details from the official site:
The Bruins will make 19 appearances as part of the Pacific-10 Conference's television package; 12 national telecasts on Fox Sports Net, two on CBS and six on ESPN. Non-conference highlights of the FSN schedule include the Dec. 18 Wooden Classic game versus BYU at Honda Center as well as 11 Pac-10 league contests. The ESPN selections include all four games of the 2010 Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off. Additionally, the Bruins' second game of the NIT Season Tip-Off on Nov. 16 (versus Pacific or Nevada) will be part of ESPN's College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon. ESPN will also showcase the UCLA at Kansas contest on Dec. 2 and the UCLA at Arizona game on Jan. 27. CBS has selected the St. John's at UCLA game on Feb. 5 and the Stanford at UCLA contest on Jan. 22. UCLA has two additional opportunities for exposure when wild card selections will be announced on Feb. 21, 2010.
