CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Boston University will be one of four Patriot League lacrosse teams to be featured on American Sports Network. The Terrier's rematch of the Patriot League Championship game at Loyola Maryland on April 11 will be picked up by the network and broadcast on many of the Sinclair Broadcast Group's affiliates throughout the country.
The matchup is the only PL women's lacrosse game to be aired this season. ASN will also broadcast the men's game between Army and Lehigh on March 15.
This will be the fourth time a Boston University team has appeared on the network, with women's soccer's home contest against Colgate appearing on ASN last fall and men's basketball's trip to Navy and home game against Colgate broadcast this winter.
American Sports Network ("ASN"), a collegiate sports initiative launched in 2014, has entered into comprehensive sports rights agreements with a number of NCAA Division I conferences including the Patriot League. Sinclair's broadcast stations will either be carrying the games and original content as part of the primary program line-up (generally on the Company's CW and MyNet affiliates) or as part of second channels (sub-channels of the primary station's signal), complimented by access and distribution on digital platforms.
Viewing information for BU vs. Loyola will be announced on GoTerriers.com and PatriotLeague.org once it becomes available.
