NEW YORK and PRINCETON, N.J. - The Columbia men's basketball team will be featured on television three times during the 2012-13 season. Fans can watch the Lions Nov. 20 game at Villanova on ESPN3, while road games at Cornell (Jan. 19) and Princeton (Feb. 2) can be seen on the NBC Sports Network.
In addition, all 12 of Columbia's home games can be seen live via SideLion on www.gocolumbialions.com.
In total, the Ivy League has an 10-game package on the newly branded NBC Sports Network and features all eight schools.
The 11-game package comes on the heels of the Ivy League and the NBC Sports Group announcing a two-year renewal of their national television rights agreement for football, men's basketball and men's lacrosse games in June. For the 2012 football season, the League boasts eight nationally-televised games with seven on the NBC Sports Network and one on the CBS Sports Network.
