Michigan State Men’s Basketball: Television coverage for 2022-2023 season announced

The 2022-2023 Michigan State men’s basketball season is getting closer with the first game being played in early November.

MSU begins the season with its home opener against Northern Arizona on Nov. 7 at 7 pm Eastern Time on BTN+. The team’s first game on actual television is when the Spartans square off against Gonzaga on Nov. 11 in San Diego. That game will air on ESPN and the tip-off time is yet to be announced.

An incredibly difficult seven-game stretch will air on national television when Michigan State plays Gonzaga (ESPN), Kentucky (ESPN), Villanova (FS1), the Phil Knight Invitational (ESPN/2) and a road contest against Notre Dame (ESPN/ 2/U) on Nov. 30.

Beginning Dec. 4, Michigan State faces Northwestern for its first Big Ten matchup of the season. That game will air on Big Ten Network.

Altogether, Michigan State will have 22 games on national television, such as ESPN’s family of networks, FOX, FS1 and CBS. Eight games will air on Big Ten Network, while one will air on the conference’s streaming service, BTN+.
