NEW YORK – (September 15, 2023) The 2023-24 BIG EAST Conference men’s basketball schedule has been announced, a 110-game double round-robin slate for a fourth straight year. Dates and matchups are released today. Game times, arena designations, and television information will be announced at a later date.

BIG EAST games will continue to be televised by FOX Sports, the league’s television partner for the past 10 years. CBS Sports will present a select number of games across CBS, Paramount+ and CBS Sports Network. All conference contests, and non-conference home games, will be televised on a linear network, principally by FOX.

The BIG EAST Tournament at Madison Square Garden will be played March 13-16. FOX and FS1 will continue to televise the event. The BIG EAST Tournament has been held at MSG since 1983. It is college basketball’s longest running conference postseason tournament held at the same venue.

The conference schedule begins Tuesday, December 19, when Georgetown plays at Butler and Marquette, last year’s regular-season and tournament champion, travels to Providence. The remaining seven league teams will begin on December 20, 22 or 23. That weekend includes a Friday night contest, the first of six Friday games on the schedule.

Villanova will play at Marquette on Jan. 15 on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The only day when five league contests will be played is Saturday, March 9, the last day of the regular season. FOX or FS1 will televise all five games.

The BIG EAST is coming off its most successful postseason since the league’s change in alignment in 2013-14. Connecticut won its fifth national championship and league teams compiled a 12-4 record in the NCAA Tournament. Creighton reached the Elite Eight. Xavier advanced to the Sweet 16. Marquette made it to the second round and Providence played in the first round. The BIG EAST has averaged 5.2 NCAA bids over the last 10 seasons. Seton Hall and Villanova participated in the NIT.

BIG EAST basketball in the 2023-24 season will also be covered on the BIG EAST Digital Network Presented by Invesco QQQ.  Shootaround, the BIG EAST’s live men’s basketball online show that captures interviews and highlights of league action, will begin its seventh year. The award-winning program will air on the league’s social media platforms ahead of the biggest games. Fans can follow @BIGEASTMBB on Twitter/X, @BIGEAST on Instagram, and BIGEASTConference on Facebook and YouTube.
Each of the BIG EAST’s 11 schools will announce their full individual schedules separately.
