ATHENS, Ohio – The Ohio University men’s basketball team will have as many as 11 games televised live during the 2013-14 campaign, including 10 league contests through the MAC television platform.

The Bobcats will make their television debut on the Big Ten Network, as the Ohio at Ohio State contest will air on the network Nov. 12 at 8 p.m.

In addition, Ohio has six Mid-American Conference games scheduled on the Time Warner Cable SportsChannel platform, with the possibility of four additional contests on either Time Warner Cable Sports Channel, ESPNU or ESPN2.

Ohio’s first three MAC contests will appear on TWC, including the Jan. 8 game at Kent State (7 p.m.) and home matchups with Akron (Jan. 12, 6 p.m.) and Ball State (Jan. 15, 8 p.m.).

Road matchups at Northern Illinois (Jan. 18) and Eastern Michigan (Jan. 25) are wildcard selection contests and can be picked up by either ESPNU or Time Warner Cable SportsChannel.
