Along with the schedules, the Big East also announced, in a nutshell, that conference basketball would be on TV...a lot.

"Big Monday"

The BIG EAST Conference will be featured in primetime on Big Monday starting Jan. 14 through the end of the conference season.


ESPN or ESPN 2 will carry a BIG EAST Conference match-up in eight of 10 weeks beginning on Jan. 2.


The BIG EAST will be featured on Thursday nights with 11 games over 10 weeks during the conference season starting with a doubleheader on Jan. 3. These contests will highlight 11 different BIG EAST teams.


ESPN will televise 10 BIG EAST games on Saturdays, with six of those 10 contests being slated for a noon, Eastern tip-off.

Giddy up.
