BTN Communications, March 9, 2020

BTN today announced its coverage of the 2020 Big Ten men's and women's lacrosse seasons, televising at least 27 games, including the B1G semifinals and championship rounds, and streaming dozens of other games on BTN Plus. Additional events may be added to the schedule at a later date.

Women's lacrosse coverage on BTN starts off tonight with a marquee matchup as the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels travel to Evanston to take on No. 6 Northwestern at 7 p.m. ET. Other regular season highlights include the Wildcats traveling to College Park to take on No. 12 Maryland at 7 p.m. ET on March 26, the Terps closing out March with a battle against No. 14 James Madison on March 29 at 4 p.m. ET and No. 13 Michigan visiting Penn State on April 2 at 7 p.m. ET.

BTN's next two men's lacrosse games feature a pair of ranked non-conference matchups, including No. 13 Notre Dame at No. 19 Ohio State (March 10) and No. 9 Virginia at No. 6 Maryland (March 14). Later this month on March 29, No. 7 Penn State hosts the Terrapins at 7 p.m. ET in a top-10 battle. In addition to a compelling regular season lineup, BTN will also televise the semifinals and championship game of the Big Ten Men's Lacrosse Tournament with coverage beginning on Thursday, April 30.

BTN's coverage is led by analysts Sheehan Stanwick Burch, Greg Bice and Mark Dixon along with play-by-play announcers Joe Beninati, Drew Carter, Jason Knapp, Dean Linke and Pete Medhurst.

The latest Inside Lacrosse Division I men's poll includes three Big Ten squads ranked in the top 20, with No. 6 Maryland, No. 7 Penn State and No. 19 Ohio State. A trio of Big Ten women's lacrosse teams are also currently ranked, including No. 6 Northwestern, No. 12 Maryland and No. 13 Michigan.
