[ 0 ] October 2, 2013 |

From UI Athletic Communications:

The Big Ten Network (BTN) announced today its men’s basketball television schedule for the 2013-14 conference season. The schedule includes seven Iowa league games on the network, with the potential of two more.  All games are available on its mobile platform BTN2GO as well.

Iowa home games versus Nebraska (Dec. 31) and Minnesota (Jan. 19) will air live on BTN, while fans can watch road contests at Wisconsin (Jan. 5), Michigan (Jan. 22), Northwestern (Jan. 25), Illinois (Feb. 1) and Minnesota (Feb. 25) on the network or BTN2GO.

Iowa’s final two home games against Purdue (March 1 or 2) and Illinois (March 8 or 9) are television wildcard games. If selected, BTN would broadcast Hawkeye games on March 1 and March 8, while CBS has the rights to March 2 and March 9.

The Hawkeyes’ remaining nine league games are slated to be televised on an ESPN platform or CBS, including eight on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.

The remainder of Iowa’s non-conference television schedule will be released in the coming weeks.

The Iowa men’s basketball team will hold its annual media day on Wednesday, Oct. 9, beginning at 2 p.m. (CT) in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
