Game Times and TV Designations Set for 2022-23 Men’s Basketball Schedule

PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers men’s basketball’s game times and TV designations were finalized for most of its schedule by the Big Ten Conference on Thursday.

The Scarlet Knights will make at least 27 appearances on national television this season. Thursday’s release provided RU with 17 regular season appearances on the Big Ten Network. The Scarlet Knights will also play on FOX (versus Michigan State), ESPN2 (versus Ohio State), ESPNU (versus Temple), and FS1 (four times). Start times and television designations for the 2022 Big Ten/ACC Challenge against Miami will be announced at a later date and will be carried on ESPN networks.

Four early season games will be available streaming on B1G+ (Columbia, Sacred Heart, UMass Lowell and Central Connecticut St.).

RU’s strength of schedule for the 2021-22 season was ranked 29 in the nation according to ESPN.com. The Scarlet Knights will look to become the first team in school history to make the NCAA Tournament in three consecutive years. Twelve wins for a fourth-place finish in the Big Ten Conference represented the most wins and the highest place in the standings for Rutgers since joining the league.

Pikiell has led RU to a 33-27 Big Ten regular season record over the past three seasons. RU was just 16-76 in their first five years in the league.

RU is coming off a season where the team set a record for sell outs (15) at Jersey Mike’s Arena. In the 2021-22 season, the Scarlet Knights sold a record number of season tickets (5,093) and are on track to surpass that number for 2022-23 season. RU has a current streak of 19 consecutive conference game sellouts.

Season tickets are on sale now for the upcoming campaign. Fans are encouraged to act fast as the 100 and the entire 200 level are sold out on a season basis with only season tickets in the 300 level remaining.
