Loyola-Iona Game On March 1 Selected For ESPN2 Broadcast


BRISTOL, Conn. – For the second year in a row, a regular-season Loyola University Maryland men’s basketball game has been selected to air on ESPN2, the network and the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference announced Thursday morning.


The Greyhounds’ game on March 1 at Iona College will be shown nationally on the network. Tip-off remains at 7 p.m. from New Rochelle, N.Y.


Loyola, which played at Rider University in an ESPN2 telecast last season, hosted Iona on January 27, a game the Gaels won 79-71 in Reitz Arena.


The Greyhounds continue MAAC action tomorrow night in another game that will be broadcast nationally. Loyola, owners of a 16-8 overall and 8-4 conference record, hosts Siena College on ESPNU at 9 p.m. in Reitz Arena.
