BTN announces full 2014-15 Men’s basketball TV slate

Sick of the Big Ten sucking it up on the football field on a weekly basis? Well, we’re just a few precious weeks away from the start of the college basketball season! Relief is in sight for the No. 1 college basketball conference in the country over the past few years.

With Wisconsin bringing back all but one player from a surprise Final Four team and many new faces throughout some of the top teams in the conference things look to be very interesting for the Big Ten in 2014-15.

On Tuesday another step was taken towards college basketball starting as BTN announced its full slate of conference and non-conference games that will be televised by the network. The network will have more basketball games than ever before, airing 77 conference contests and five Big Ten tournament games for the first time in the history of the network and tournament.

There will also be 10 straight weeks of “Super Wednesday” doubleheaders (some will be tripleheaders).

Out of conference play, BTN will have some of the biggest non-conference matchups featuring Big Ten teams. BTN will air Iowa State at Iowa, Creighton at Nebraska, Southern Methodist at Indiana, George Washington at Rutgers, Cincinnati at Nebraska, Oregon vs. Illinois at the United Center in Chicago and Notre Dame vs. Purdue at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

However, the real big deal is the set of games in conference play that will be seen on BTN.
