The Big 12 Conference released its 90-game 2015 men's basketball schedule, completing the University of Oklahoma's 2014-15 slate. OU, which begins its league schedule Jan. 3 at home against Baylor, will have all 18 of its conference games televised nationally by the ESPN family of networks.

Head coach Lon Kruger's Sooners will play their other eight league home games Jan. 10 vs. Kansas State (ESPNU), Jan. 17 vs. Oklahoma State (ESPN or ESPN2), Jan. 28 vs. Texas Tech (ESPNEWS), Feb. 3 vs. West Virginia (ESPN2), Feb. 9 vs. Iowa State (ESPN), Feb. 17 vs. Texas (ESPN2), Feb. 28 vs. TCU (ESPNU) and March 7 vs. Kansas (ESPN or ESPN2).

OU will play its nine road games Jan. 5 at Texas (ESPN), Jan. 13 at West Virginia (ESPNEWS), Jan. 19 at Kansas (ESPN), Jan. 24 at Baylor (ESPN2), Jan. 31 at Oklahoma State (ESPN2), Feb. 7 at TCU (ESPNEWS), Feb. 14 at Kansas State (ESPN2), Feb. 21 at Texas Tech (ESPNU or ESPNEWS) and March 2 at Iowa State (ESPN or ESPNU).

The Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship will be played March 11-14 (Wednesday-Saturday) at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

A total of 87 Big 12 matchups (96.7 percent) are scheduled to be televised on a national platform. The televised conference games are being carried as part of a multi-year agreement with ESPN that runs through the 2024-25 season. No fewer than 100 games overall (conference and non-conference) will air annually.

This season, a number of Big 12 contests will also be carried on ESPNEWS, which will show more college basketball than ever before in 2014-15. Both ESPNEWS and ESPNU are available in more than 74 million households nationwide.

The Big 12 is the only one of its peer conferences to play a full double round-robin schedule in basketball. The league sent a nation’s-best seven teams to the NCAA Tournament a year ago and was rated as the No. 1 conference in the country in the RPI during the regular season. The Big 12 also had more top 25 teams last season than any other conference, with seven rated in the various early national top 25 polls that have already been released for the 2014-15 campaign.

The Sooners return four starters, 68 percent of their scoring, 70 percent of their rebounding and 73 percent of their assists from last year's 23-10 team that finished in second place in the Big 12 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season.
