Davidson will play 10 of its 18 Atlantic 10 men’s basketball games on national television this season, the school announced Wednesday.

The Wildcats’ first league game will be at Richmond on Dec. 30. It will air on NBCSN, which will broadcast four of Davidson’s A-10 games.

Two of Davidson’s league games will air on a Friday on ESPN2 - against visiting St. Bonaventure on Jan. 19, and at Rhode Island on Feb. 9. The four other nationally televised games will air on CBSSN.

Last season, the Wildcats (17-15) finished eighth in the A-10 with an 8-10 record and missed the NCAA tournament. Three conference teams – Dayton, Rhode Island and VCU – made the field.
