Men’s basketball to play on ESPN 7 times this winter
While living in Pennsylvania a couple of years ago, my wife and I rearranged our schedules any time we found out that a Baylor game would be televised there. We didn’t care what sport it was — football, basketball, baseball, softball, we watched them all.
Fans who can’t make it to the Ferrell Center this winter will have plenty of opportunities to catch the Baylor men’s basketball team on television. Thanks in large part to last year’s NCAA Tournament appearance, head coach Scott Drew’s team is already slated for seven nationally televised games on ESPN’s family of networks, including two “Big Monday” games. The Bears’ last “Big Monday” appearance came back in 2001, when the team upset No. 6 Kansas in the Ferrell Center. In all, 15 of the men’s 16 conference games have already been picked up for regional or national television. (The non-conference schedule has not yet been released.)
Sic ’em, Baylor men’s basketball!
