All Stef, All the Time

Perhaps that is an exaggeration but basketball fans in the Hudson Valley will get to see plenty of Minisink Valley graduate Stefanie Dolson now that the Connecticut women’s basketball team has signed a four-year deal to have most of its non-national games aired by SportsNet New York (SNY). A minimum of 17 live UConn games will be aired by SNY, and approximately 325 hours of annual coverage will be provided.
The rights fee is anticipated to be $1.14 million annually, a jump over the $900,000 fee by former rights holder Connecticut Public TV (CPTV), which has televised games the past 18 seasons.
“I am very excited that SNY will be our television home for the next four years,” said UConn coach Geno Auriemma. “This agreement will continue to provide all of our loyal fans in the state of Connecticut an opportunity to watch our team play and will also help us develop a whole new group of UConn women’s basketball fans throughout the Northeast and the entire nation. SNY will also allow us to showcase UConn women’s basketball to a larger audience, which will support our recruiting efforts and help us maintain the level of success in our program.”
