Four regular season games and 23 tournament games on the ESPN family of networks highlights the 2018 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference men’s basketball TV schedule.
The schedule tips off on Monday, Feb. 5 as defending MEAC regular season and tournament North Carolina Central hosts Hampton for a 7 p.m. start. Despite losing the core of last year's team to graduation, the Eagles look to have offset the departures with solid play in non-conference action. The second week of action features Delaware State at 2016-17 MEAC regular season and tournament runner-up Norfolk State on Feb. 12 at 7 p.m.
North Carolina Central is back on the tubes once again two weeks later as they'll welcome Howard to Durham, N.C. on Feb. 19. The final ESPNU regular season contest tips off on Monday, Feb. 26 as Norfolk State travels to Howard.
The entire 2018 MEAC Tournament (men’s & women’s) will be shown live on ESPN3. In addition to the ESPN3 broadcast, the men’s championship game will broadcast live on ESPN2 at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 11 while the women’s contest will rebroadcast on ESPNU at 12 p.m. on Sunday, March 12.
