The Big East has released its men's basketball schedule for 2012-13. This season, 56% of the league's games will be nationally televised.

The Big East released the complete schedule for the 2012-13 men's college basketball season on Wednesday afternoon. Every one of the conference's games will be televised, with 56% being featured on national television. In addition, over 80% of the league's games will feature at least one team who appeared in the NCAA Tournament last season.

ESPN & ESPN 2 will televise 45 conference games, while ESPN U will be broadcasting at least 24 league games and ESPN 3 will be carrying all games that appear on the Big East Network. ESPN will continue to carry the Big East championship, which will take place on March 12-16.

This is the sixth consecutive year that the Big East will have every league game televised, which is a source of great pride for the conference.

Via the Big East's official website:

"BIG EAST men's basketball and unparalleled national media exposure have always been synonymous," said BIG EAST Commissioner Mike Aresco. "The 2012-13 schedule is unmatched in the scope of national, regional and local telecasts. Our coaches and student-athletes are committed to excellence at the highest level. I know the upcoming season will be filled with outstanding and exciting play."
