SEC announces Men's Basketball television Schedule

By  | 

Birmingham, Ala. – The Southeastern Conference unveiled the television networks and start times for its 2017-18 men’s basketball schedule on Wednesday.

Each of the games can be seen from anywhere in the nation. SEC Network will televise 69 games, ESPN or ESPN2 will televise 40 contests, ESPNU 11 and CBS Sports six. The SEC’s games on ESPN platforms are exclusively branded as the “SEC on ESPN.”

All of the games included in the ESPN package (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and SEC Network) will also be available through the ESPN app, which is accessible on computers, smartphones, tablets and connected devices to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider. Each of the CBS Sports games will be available to stream live in markets across the U.S. via the CBS All Access subscription service, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports app.

Conference play tips off the weekend of December 30-31 and runs through Saturday, March 3. Each SEC team plays the other 13 teams at least one time during league play. They will then play their three permanent opponents a second time and the remaining two games will be scheduled on a rotating basis. The fifth annual Big 12/SEC Challenge will take place on Saturday, January 27.

Kentucky (2), Missouri (4), Alabama (8), Florida (11), LSU (14), Arkansas (20), Texas A&M (27), Auburn (28) and Georgia (31) each have recruiting classes that rank among the top 31 of ESPN’s RecruitingNation Class Rankings for 2017. Twenty-six of ESPN’s 2017 Top 100 recruits signed with SEC schools, including 21 of the top 66 players.

The SEC Network will televise the first three days of the SEC Basketball Tournament (March 7-11) from Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo. The semifinals and championship game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
