Bob Joyce to remain the radio voice of UConn women's basketball

Three and a half months after it was announced that 97.9 ESPN would become the new home for UConn's basketball, football and men's hockey programs, news has come out that Bob Joyce, the voice for the 11-time national champion women's basketball team would be continuing in that role.

The move means that Joyce will be leaving WTIC but will continue to call the games for Geno Auriemma's powerhouse program as well as men's hockey games when his schedule permits.

In other women's basketball broadcasting news, the WNBA's Connecticut Sun announced that NBC Sports Boston will air 22 regular-season games beginning with Friday's game at Chicago. Fox 61/CW 20 will carry five games (June 15 at Seattle, July 3 at Los Angeles, July 7 at Las Vegas, July 15 at Minnesota and July 22 at Dallas).

This means that only four of the Sun's 34 games won't be shown on either NBC Sports Boston, Fox 61, WCCT, ESPN2, Twitter or NBA TV.
