HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac University men's basketball student-athlete Marquis Barnett (Queens, N.Y.) will appear on SportsNet New York TV (SNY) on Friday, February 10 at 10:30 p.m. Barnett will be featured on 'Geico SportsNite,' a sports segment that delivers the latest news, scores, highlights, stories and analysis to all New York sports fans. Reporter Carly Lindsay recently sat down with the 6-foot-8 forward to discuss his transition from a difficult childhood to a new home at QU.

SNY highlighted Barnett last year in its annual SNY Invitational. Benjamin Cardozo, his high school team, has been a participant over the past few seasons. The story also includes an interview with Head Coach Tom Moore.

'Geico SportsNite airs from 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. and runs every half-hour. The program will be rebroadcasted on Friday morning.

QU is back in action on Sunday, February 10 at Central Connecticut State University. Tip-off is set for 12 p.m. with all the action live on MSG.
