'08-09 Men's Basketball Schedule Announced
July 24, 2008

Highlighted by three national television windows each week on ESPN or ESPN2, the Big 12 Conference has announced its men's basketball conference schedule for the 2008-09 season.

Nearly 90 percent of the conference games this season will be televised nationally or regionally on an ESPN network, ABC, CBS or the newly-branded, regionally-syndicated Big 12 Network. The games are being broadcast as part of the first season of a new multi-year agreement with ESPN that runs through the 2015-16 season. Only 13 league contests will not be televised on a national or regional basis, but many of those may be selected at a later date for local telecast packages and inclusion on ESPN Full Court - the pay subscription college basketball outer-market service.

The league slate tips off on Saturday, January 10, with five contests broadcast nationally and regionally. The Big 12 resumes its spot in ESPN's traditional "Big Monday" lineup two days later when Texas travels to Oklahoma. Seven of the 12 conference squads will be featured on Big Monday. Over the course of the 2008-09 campaign, every school in the conference will be showcased on ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC.

In men's basketball, the Big 12 is first conference to be guaranteed three weekly telecast windows on ESPN or ESPN2, which reach 96 and 95 million homes, respectively. In addition, 95 games overall (conference and non-conference) will air annually with more than 60 contests broadcast by ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN360, ABC or another national over-the-air network.

In March, the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship will continue to be televised on a variety of ESPN platforms including ESPN, ESPN2 and in regional syndication on the Big 12 Network. Formerly presented as being telecast by ESPN Plus, Big 12 Network games will be seen throughout the conference's geographic footprint and beyond. Among all the televised games, many will also be available as part of ESPN Full Court.
