CBS has reached a multi-year agreement with ESPN that will allow it to broadcast men's basketball games from the ACC, Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences beginning with the 2012-13 season.
The deal allows CBS to broadcast 20 games from within the three conferences over the course of next season, and 26 games in every season after that. The length of the deal was not disclosed.
Additionally, CBS will continue to carry the Missouri Valley Conference tournament championship game for the length of the agreement, as well as the Atlantic 10 tournament championship game in 2013. CBS will also continue to be the home for the Big Ten and Conference USA tournament championship games.
