Big Ten Network Unveils Sunday Night Basketball Lineup

The Big Ten Network’s full Sunday night lineup debuts Jan. 9, with brand new episodes of The Journey: Big Ten Basketball 2011, Big Ten Basketball and Beyond and Big Ten Icons, presented by Discover, immediately after the network’s weekly Sunday basketball telecast.

The Big Ten Network’s first original series and its highest rated last year, The Journey franchise returns for a fourth consecutive season at 9 PM ET. The popular, documentary-style program takes viewers deep inside Big Ten basketball programs, spending consecutive days with different Big Ten teams on a rotating basis during the 10-week march toward the Big Ten Tournament. The program was named the 2010 co-winner of the best sports show/series by CableFAX magazine, along with ESPN’s 30 for 30. New in 2011, fans of the show are invited to experience The Journey on Twitter (@BTNJourney) to get daily updates and bonus content from show producers and editors.

At 9:30 PM ET, lead studio host Dave Revsine hosts Big Ten Basketball and Beyond along with two-time Big Ten Player of the Year and former Buckeye All-American Jim Jackson and The Sporting News’ national columnist Mike DeCourcy. The trio will review the week’s top headlines, preview the week’s top games and look at how the national storylines might affect the Big Ten.

Beginning Jan. 16, the three shows settle into their regular time periods, with The Journey at 8 PM ET, Beyond at 8:30 and Big Ten Icons at 9 PM ET.

With 111 men’s basketball games, including 64 conference matchups, the Big Ten Network will air more Big Ten basketball games than any other network this season. In addition to the Sunday night lineup, the Big Ten Network will have men’s basketball telecasts on Tuesdays, Super Wednesday doubleheaders, Thursdays and Saturdays. The network also will feature women’s basketball doubleheaders on Thursdays, and additional women’s basketball game telecasts on Sundays.

More ‘Greatest Games’ on the Way

Featuring epic rivalries, stunning upsets, down-to-the-wire finishes and jaw-dropping performances, the fourth basketball season of The Big Ten’s Greatest Games is underway.

New episodes of the 11-episode series debut at 5 PM ET every Monday night for nine straight weeks through March. The list of classics features Big Ten fans’ most commonly requested games over the past year. Check out the full schedule by clicking HERE.
