    Anyone know how this compares to years past? Seems like quite a few to me

      Last year we had 15 games on national television (if I’m counting correctly) before the B1G Tournament. My guess is we’ll have at least 18 this year. This is probably the most in a long time. I have the BTN, but was wondering how available it is across the country?

    Any idea when tickets for the games at Madison Square Garden go on sale?

    More national television = more late games :-(

    • True, plus BTN means a lot of 6:30 or 8:30 tips which are always a bit odd. Those womens/mens double headers lead to some late nights too.

    BTN is regional I believe. I’m sure with some dish packages you can subscribe for extra though no matter where you are.
