The Arizona State Sun Devils will be front and center of a national television audience 12 times against Pac-12 opponents during the 2019-20 basketball season.
The Pac-12 released the full TV schedule for the upcoming year on Thursday, and head coach Bobby Hurley’s ASU squad will appear on an ESPN channel 10 times during league competition.
It will also appear on FS1 once, on Feb. 8 against USC, and be featured on ESPN2 for a Nov. 8 game against Colorado — that game in China is technically not a conference game.
ASU went 23-11 overall and 12-6 in conference play a year ago, including an NCAA Tournament victory over St. John’s in a First Four matchup.
The rival Arizona Wildcats, with a top-five recruiting class incoming, have 12 national games during their conference slate. Eight of Arizona’s Pac-12 games will appear on an ESPN channel, while the other four will appear on FOX or FS1.
Sean Miller’s team went 17-15 last season and 8-10 in Pac-12 competition.
As for the rivalry games between the Sun Devils and Wildcats, both will appear on a Saturday. The first opens the conference season on Jan. 4 in Tucson and will air on Pac-12 Network at 7:30 p.m.
Arizona State hosts Arizona on Jan. 25 in Tempe. That game will also tip at 7:30 p.m. MST and broadcast on Pac-12 Network.
