2010-11 men's basketball schedule

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. "We look forward to showing the millions of college basketball fans watching at home what Stony Brook Basketball is capable of achieving on the court."

The Seawolves will open the season on SNY when they face Connecticut on Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. The following week, the team will participate in the third annual ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon, taking on Monmouth at 6 a.m. Nov. 16 on ESPN, the school’s first-ever appearance on the flagship station that reaches 99.5 million households across the country. 

Stony Brook will also have two appearances on ESPNU, which reaches 72.5 million households across the country. The Seawolves will play at Notre Dame Dec. 19 at 4:30 p.m. and host Maine on Feb. 12 at 11 a.m. in a game that will be played in Stony Brook Arena. 

Stony Brook will also have five games broadcasted regionally in the Tri-State area through MSG-Plus. These include home games on Nov. 21 against Wagner, Dec. 11 against Sacred Heart and Jan. 17 against Albany and road contests at Binghamton Jan. 10 and Albany Feb. 14.
