MAAC Extends TV Deal with MSG Network

The MAAC has reached a three-year broadcast rights renewal with MSG Networks for the telecast of 22 men’s basketball, women’s basketball and ice hockey contests.

As it has the past two seasons, MSG will televise the 2002, 2003 and 2004 MAAC men’s hockey Championship games. In addition, MSG Network will air 12 regular season MAAC men’s basketball games through the 2003-2004 season, as well as six men’s games and three women’s games during the next three MAAC Basketball Tournaments.

“We are pleased to have extended our agreement with the MAAC,” said Mike McCarthy, executive vice president of MSG Networks. “Not only does the MAAC represent great collegiate athletics, it also represents great local programming for our entire coverage area. We look forward to another three years of exciting action.”

“The MAAC membership values its relationship with MSG Network, the recognized national leader in regional sports programming,” said Rich Ensor, MAAC commissioner.
