The Longhorn Network announced their TV schedule for UT basketball events today, headlined by the announcement that the October 20th Gregory Gym scrimmage will be televised. This is great news for people who don’t live in Austin and/or prefer not to have to torrent cell phone videos of the event.
NEWS: @LonghornNetwork to televise 11 @TexasMBB events in the 2016-17 season. #HookEm https://t.co/AwRaqoOtSY— Texas Basketball (@TexasMBB) October 4, 2016
All in all, there are 9 regular season games (6 non-conference, 3 conference) and 2 exhibitions/scrimmages slated for TV time. Given how the football team has been playing, this could be a nice distraction for aggrieved Longhorns faithful.
If you’d like to know more about the team, Jeff Haley and I have created a season preview eBook that’s available for preorder now. The release date is October 24th, which gives you plenty of time to read up on the 2016 squad before the season opens on November 11th. It’s available on iTunes and Amazon for $4.99.
