The Lafayette Sports Network, the Patriot League leader in television coverage for the 14th straight season, will televise at least 11 of its regular-season games during the 2010-11 season. The Leopards will also lead the Patriot League with at least nine nationally-televised games, as MASN (available through both DIRECTV and DISH Network) will air Lafayette's entire slate of home league contests on a tape-delay basis for the third straight season.
Now in its 14th year, LSN has become a staple for Leopard fans both regionally and across the country. LSN's traditional live distribution to more than 10 million homes on RCN-4 and WBPH-60 covering all of Eastern Pennsylvania will be enhanced this season by live coverage on all of RCN's cable systems in major markets along the East coast. RCN subscribers in Boston (226,000), New York City (250,000), Philadelphia (382,000) and Washington, D.C. (131,000) will be able to watch all Lafayette games on RCN-8.
New to LSN distribution this season are ESPN Full Court, ESPN's pay per view service, and ESPN3.com, ESPN's broadband service. These ESPN outlets are picking up select LSN telecasts throughout the 2010-11 season.
Emmy-nominated local sports broadcaster Gary Laubach will handle all of Lafayette's play-by-play duties for the 14th straight season. Former Lafayette men's basketball coach John Leone will provide color analysis for the 12th season.
