When the local sports TV schedules were set late last summer, with the Blackhawks coming off a Stanley Cup championship and the Bulls with a bunch of new players, putting tonight's Blackhawks game on the main CSN channel and the Bulls game on CSN Plus seemed like the logical choice.â†µâ†µ
Now? Not so much. There are also eight ranked college basketball teams available on TV tonight.
5:30 p.m., Big Ten Network: College basketball, Northwestern at Michigan.â†µâ†µ
6 p.m., ESPNU: College basketball, No. 15 Louisville at No. 7 Notre Dame. Not everyone gets ESPNU, even with digital cable or satellite, but this is a big game between ranked teams.â†µâ†µ
6 p.m., ESPN: College basketball, No. 11 Georgetown at No. 13 Syracuse.â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., Comcast 100: AHL, Wolves vs. Griffins at the Allstate Arena. The Griffins are from Grand Rapids, Michigan.â†µâ†µ
