2014 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship TV, live stream schedule


Here’s the full schedule for this year’s Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship in Kansas City, Missouri.

All the seeds are in place after the regular season concluded on Saturday. The Iowa State Cyclones finished at fourth place in the Big 12 standings and will take on the Kansas State Wildcats, who finished fifth. That game is on Thursday at 11:30 AM Central time on ESPN2.

If the Cyclones advance, they would play in the first semifinal game (6:00 PM, ESPNU/Big 12 Network). If they win that, then the championship game is on ESPN with coverage beginning at 7:00 PM (tip-off at 8:00 PM). With the Big East exploding last year and FOX Sports 1 taking those broadcast rights, the Big 12 championship is now the primetime game on ESPN.

Most notable to watch in the tournament (outside of Iowa State) is Oklahoma State’s eighth-place finish. They will have to play in the opening round on Wednesday against Texas Tech. If they win, they’ll take on Kansas.

Here’s the full men’s basketball tournament schedule. Note that there will be a lot of ways you can watch this tournament. For those that wanted to watch the Cyclones-Wildcats game at work, you must have access to WatchESPN, which is separate from ESPN3*.
