Connecticut Gov. Jodi Rell intervened on the part of UConn women's basketball fans and convinced ESPN to broadcast tonight's Big East Tournament semifinal game on CPTV.
Originally, the first three days of the tournament were slated to be seen on ESPNU only, but Gov. Rell contacted the president of ESPN after many of UConn's fans complained that their cable carriers either do not carry ESPNU or require an elevated service package.
The game, between the Huskies and Pittsburgh Panthers is slated to tip-off from the XL Center at 6 p.m.
