The programming for the Texas Longhorns 2021-22 basketball season has been completed after Wednesday’s release of the Big 12 conference schedule, though it currently does not include schedules and TV channels.
Texas opens with a home game against West Virginia on Saturday, Jan. 1 and also plays two big Monday contests against Kansas on Feb. 7 and Baylor on Feb. 28, the last game at the Erwin Center. The Big 12 show ends Saturday, March 5 against Kansas in Lawrence.
The double-round format continues in the conference for an eleventh consecutive season with 18 games in total and two games against a member of the league. The Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship will be held March 9-12 at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City.
Texas head coach Chris Beard begins his first season at Forty Acres after five years at Texas Tech that included a 49-40 record in the Big 12 play and a tie for first place in 2018-19 .
