UMass basketball vs. Richmond TV, online video, radio broadcast: Where to watch the Minutemen Saturday

The University of Massachusetts basketball team looks to continue its upward trend and build on Tuesday’s win over Rhode Island when it heads to Richmond on Saturday.

Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. at the Robins Center in Richmond, Virginia.

If you won’t be making it Virginia to catch the game in person, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered as you look for somewhere to follow along with the action. Let’s take a look your options:

Live blog

First off, I’d suggest giving me a follow on Twitter because I’ll be sharing commentary throughout the game that will also be part of a live blog I’ll be running right here on


Saturday’s game technically is on television, but it won’t be accessible for the majority of fans. Unless, of course, you have Dish Network. If you have Dish Network (or live near Virginia/Maryland) you can tune in on Comcast Sports Network Mid-Atlantic (channel finder here).

The listings for Dish Network are Ch. 424 for standard definition and Ch. 5424 for high definition.

Online video

If you don’t fall into either of the above television categories, your viewing options will be limited to the Atlantic 10 Digital Network. You know the drill, so have your log-in info ready or be prepared to sign up and fork over $4.95 to purchase the live stream.
