Virginia media displeased with lack of TV coverage

https://pilotonline.com/sports/columnis … 76dc9.html

"As I was surfing ESPN’s web site recently, I was struck by the college basketball game it picked as the best in the nation on Thursday night.

Hint: it wasn’t Northwestern at Wisconsin, No. 16 Wichita State at Temple or Creighton at No. 1 Villanova.

It was Middle Tennessee at Old Dominion.

That this was a critical Conference USA game came as no surprise. Middle (17-5), which held off ODU 66-59, had a sterling No. 27 ranking in the RPI and has beaten Mississippi and Vanderbilt.

Had ODU won, the Monarchs (16-5) would have moved into a first-place tie with Western Kentucky. And the games between these two teams have been competitive in recent years.

So can anyone explain why, at a time when C-USA should be promoting its best teams, this wasn’t on traditional TV?"
