BIG 12 TELEVISION FAQ'S
FORT WORTH—The Big 12 Conference portion of TCU’s 2013-14 men’s basketball schedule was announced Thursday. Fifteen of the Horned Frogs’ 18 league games will air on the ESPN family of networks.
TCU previously announced a 12-game non-conference slate that tips-off Nov. 8 with a matchup against SMU at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. When including all conference and non-conference action, the Frogs could play as many as 16 regular-season games against teams that qualified for postseason play in 2012-13, including 11 against NCAA Tournament teams.
The Frogs begin Big 12 play with back-to-back home games against West Virginia (Jan. 4) and Kansas State (Jan. 7), last year’s co-league champion, while they have one other two-game homestand in late February against a pair of reigning NCAA qualifiers in Iowa State (Feb. 22) and Oklahoma State (Feb. 24). Three times during the league season the squad will face back-to-back road trips, one time each in January (Jan. 11 at Baylor and Jan. 15 at Oklahoma State), February (Feb. 15 at Kansas and Feb. 19 at Kansas State) and March (March 1 at West Virginia and March 5 at Texas).
TCU will close out the regular season at home against Oklahoma for the second consecutive season (March 8) before traveling to Kansas City, Mo., for the 2013 Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship, held March 12-15 at the Sprint Center.
The Frogs have one game that will be televised on either ESPN or ESPN2, the Feb. 22 home matchup against ISU. Five additional contests will appear on ESPNU, while nine will air on the conference’s regionally syndicated Big 12 Network. Three of TCU’s league contests were not selected for the Big 12’s television package but are expected to air via the third-tier rights platform for the respective home team: Jan. 18 vs. Texas Tech, March 1 at West Virginia and March 5 at Texas.
Game times and television plans for TCU’s remaining games will be announced at a later date. The Frogs’ third-tier platform, FOX Sports Southwest, is expected to televise several additional home contests that are not part of the Big 12’s television schedule.
