Stony Brook Director of Athletics Jim Fiore has announced a nine-game regular season television package for the men’s basketball team, including three national broadcasts on the ESPN family of networks, the largest television package in school history.
"This is a tremendous recognition of how quickly Stony Brook Basketball has grown under Coach Pikiell’s leadership," Fiore said. "We value, respect and appreciate the opportunity to showcase our university and athletic program to a national audience. I am very confident our team will be prepared, and our student-athletes will compete at a high level while representing our Seawolves family with class."
"To say that we have the largest television package in school history is a great honor and a testament to how hard our players have worked to make this program worthy of national television broadcasts," head coach Steve Pikiell said.
