ESPN has announced that it will broadcast 12 Texas basketball games on the Longhorn Network. Nine non-conference matchups and three nonconference games will be aired. Included in that slate is two TicketCity Legends Classic tournament games -- Oregon State and N.C. State/Vanderbilt -- which will be played in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
"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."
