BIG EAST Announces 2010-11 Men's Basketball Schedule Matchups

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The BIG EAST Conference has announced the league opponents and game sites for its men's basketball teams for the 2010-11 season.

In 2010-11, the BIG EAST will play an 18-game conference schedule, allowing teams to face 12 opponents once and three opponents twice. It will mark the fourth year of the 18-game schedule, which began in the 2007-08 season. All 144 regular-season conference games will again be televised, either by CBS Sports, the ESPN family of networks or ESPN Regional Television.
 
In 2009-10, the BIG EAST tied its own NCAA record by placing eight schools into the NCAA Championship.  West Virginia advanced to the Final Four.  It was the third time in the last five seasons that eight BIG EAST teams received NCAA bids.
 
The decisions regarding repeat opponents are based on natural interest, geography, rivalries, television contractual obligations and competitive balance.
 
The full 2010-11 conference schedule will be announced at a later date.
