1999-2000 Big 12 Conference Women's Basketball Television Schedule Announced|
Aug. 30, 1999
DALLAS - The Big 12 Conference announced Monday its women's basketball television package for the 1999-2000 season which features a total of 29 matchups to be telecast by FOX Sports Net (FSN) and ESPN.
The FSN package features 25 appearances for the league, including the semifinals and championship games of the 2000 Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City. Also included are three non-conference games against teams from the Pacific-10, Big Ten and Big East Conferences, highlighted by Oklahoma's matchup against 1995 National Champion Connecticut.
ESPN will televise four games involving Big 12 Conference teams. Two games will feature conference matchups while the other two will showcase the Big 12/ACC Challenge. Iowa State will host North Carolina and Texas will host North Carolina State in the challenge games.
Every Big 12 team will have at least two appearances on FSN with one appearance at home. The television schedule contains seven regular season prime time appearances for the league and four Saturday conference doubleheaders, in addition to the Sunday doubleheader featuring the Big 12/ACC Challenge.
All 26 of the regular season televised games feature at least one of the Big 12's nine 1999 postseason tournament teams. Iowa State, Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, and Texas Tech represented the Big 12 in the 1999 NCAA Tournament with Iowa State advancing to the Regional finals for the first time in school history. Four more conference teams -- Baylor, Colorado, Kansas State and Oklahoma -- competed in the WNIT.
Seven Big 12 teams return at least four starters for the 1999-2000 season, including Iowa State and Oklahoma which return all five. Four of the five 1999 First Team All-Big 12 selections return to their respective teams and 11 of 15 selections on the complete All-Big 12 Teams return this season.
