The Longhorn Network will air 12 regular season men’s basketball games this year. The games include nine non-conference and three Big 12 Conference contests. In addition to the lineup of games, several basketball-themed programs will also air to give viewers exclusive access to the basketball program. Five of the nine non-conference games set to air include teams from Texas and the three conference games will be Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Texas Tech.

“Our program is excited to have so many games televised by Longhorn Network this coming season,” said head coach Rick Barnes. “When our fans and college basketball viewers in general see the quality of the telecasts, they will think they are watching an ESPN or ESPN2 national telecast. In addition, the Texas GameDay show that will air courtside at the Erwin Center creates a great opportunity for our students and fans to come early and provide a great home-court advantage for our team.”
