Per a release from the Big 12 conference: "The Big 12 has released the 2023-24 men’s basketball conference schedule, its first as a 14-team league. Teams will play five Big 12 opponents twice and the other eight conference opponents once, for a total of 18 Conference games.
Opponents were selected based on a combination of geography, historical results and a poll of the coaches to best balance the schedule in terms of travel and competitive balance. Teams will begin conference play on Saturday, January 6 and finish the regular season on Saturday, March 9. The Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship will be conducted Tuesday-Saturday, March 12-16 at T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
All 126 league contests are slated for telecast with 122 on ESPN platforms, including Big 12 Now on ESPN+, and four on CBS and Paramount+. Dates, times and television designations are subject to change. Finalized details for flex picks will be announced closer to the game dates.
Seven Big 12 teams played in the 2023 NCAA Championship for the seventh season since 2010, including six of the last nine tournaments conducted. With Oklahoma State’s appearance in the NIT, the Big 12 placed at least 80% of teams in postseason play for the fifth season since 2003-04. The Big 12 was the only conference with 80% of its teams playing in the 2023 major postseason tournaments.
Big 12 teams will open the regular season on Monday, November 6 with non-conference action."
