A source tells me this morning that UConn’s television contract with SNY, which for women’s basketball is in the first of four years, specifically says it is subject to comply with any change in UConn conference affiliation or a change in Big East television policies that would impact football or either basketball program.
In other words, the SNY situation is not expected to affect any possible move to another league. The source tells me it could even be a plus if a new league was intrigued by the SNY relationship, exposure and revenue it provides the school.
Right now, there is no ACC Network, like there is a Big Ten or Pac-12 network. The ACC’s television relationship is with ESPN, just like the Big East.
