For the first time in Big 12 history, the entire Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship will be televised nationally on ESPN networks.
Previously, selected contests during the championship were shown in certain areas on the Big 12 Network.
This year's championship will have every game broadcast on either ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU for the first time.
Also, the final will move back to its 5 p.m. local tipoff after a later start a year ago.
On the season, more than 100 Big 12 games will be televised on the ESPN networks.
