Battle 4 Atlantis: Make Sure You Know How To Watch The Syracuse Orange

New, 36 comments

Assuming they win the first game, all of Syracuse's games will be on ESPN/ESPN2. If they lose, however, you're gonna have to go looking for AXS.

The Battle 4 Atlantis is quickly approaching and the Syracuse Orange will be there before you know it. When they're there, you're going to want to figure out where AXS TV is on your cable or satellite system. That's because AXS TV exclusively broadcasts the primetime games from the 2015 Battle 4 Atlantis Men’s College Basketball Tournament and there's a chance SU could have a game or two on there.

ESPN and ESPN2 will broadcast all of the day games.

AXS TV’s primetime coverage tips off each night at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., starting Nov. 25 with the Texas A&M Aggies vs. Texas Longhorns followed by Michigan Wolverines vs. Connecticut Huskies. Depending on who wins, Syracuse will either play Michigan or UConn game the following day.

Syracuse's November 25 game vs. Charlotte 49ers will be televised on ESPN2 at 2:30 p.m. Ironically, the Orange will only end up on AXS if they lose this game. The winner's bracket games are all scheduled during the day and will be on ESPN while all of the loser's bracket games will end up on AXS.

So, if Syracuse loses to Charlotte, they'll play the Michigan-UConn loser the following night at 7:30 p.m. on AXS. However, if they beat Charlotte, they'll play the Michigan-UConn winner the next day at 3:30 p.m. on ESPN.

Obviously, we're rooting for wins, but just in case SU loses that opener, it's good to know where AXS is if you have to find it.
