CHICAGO – In addition to three televised games at the 76 Classic during Thanksgiving weekend, the DePaul men’s basketball team is scheduled to make four additional appearances on television this season. The non-conference television schedule opened Sunday evening with the season-opening win against Chicago State.
The Blue Demons open the 76 Classic in Anaheim on Thanksgiving Day against Oklahoma State on ESPN2. DePaul and Oklahoma State tip off at 3:30 p.m. CT. Day two of the 76 Classic will have DePaul on either ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU depending on the result of the Oklahoma State game at either 1:30 p.m. or 4 p.m. CT. DePaul faces either Virginia Tech or Cal State Northridge on Friday, Nov. 26.
In the final day in Anaheim, the Blue Demons will be televised on ESPN2 or ESPNU. The Sunday, Nov. 28 game will see DePaul take on Murray State, UNLV, Stanford or Tulsa.
In addition to televising the Chicago State game, LPTV will also be the channel for the Northern Illinois game on Thursday, Dec. 2. The Blue Demons and Huskies are scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start at Allstate Arena.
The final two non-conference TV games will be televised on a new channel to the Chicagoland line-up – WCUU – 'The U Too.' 'The U Too' will also be the home to DePaul’s BIG EAST Network games as part ESPN Regional Television.
'The U Too' is scheduled to launch in December and features DePaul games against UW-Milwaukee and Loyola-Chicago on Dec. 14 and 18. Due to the added television game for the UW-Milwaukee game, the start time has been moved to 8 p.m. It was originally scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start in Rosemont.
