Complete Big 12 on ESPN Big Monday Schedule

IRVING, Texas – Baylor men’s basketball will be featured twice on ESPN’s Big Monday platform for the 2012 season, the Big 12 Conference announced Thursday. The announcement marks the third time in the last four seasons Baylor will play multiple Big Monday games.

Baylor, which finished 18-13 in 2010-11, will travel to Lawrence, Kan., to face the Kansas Jayhawks on Jan. 16, 2012, at 8:30 p.m. CT. For the second consecutive year, the Baylor-Kansas showdown will be the second half of a unique Big 12/ESPN Big Monday doubleheader; the first game will feature Texas A&M at Missouri (4:30 p.m.). The Bears’ second Big Monday game will take place Feb. 20 at Texas (8 p.m. CT). Baylor and Texas have split the last six series meetings.

Baylor is 1-4 all-time in ESPN Big Monday contests. Three of those contests have come against the Jayhawks; Baylor and Texas will be playing on Big Monday for the second time.

The Big 12 led the nation in non-conference winning percentage a year ago and had at least seven 20-win squads for the fourth consecutive campaign. The league has earned 24 NCAA bids in the past four seasons and 42 since 2004 – all by teams that will compete in the Big 12 in 2011-12. The full composite conference schedule, including games on CBS, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, Big 12 Network and ESPN’s College GameDay, will be released in the coming weeks.
