(BLOOMINGTON) – Indiana Women’s Basketball will play 10 games on Big Ten Network during the upcoming 2019-20 season, announced on Thursday afternoon.
In a previously unannounced non-conference date, the Hoosiers will face UCLA on Big Ten Network on Sunday, Dec. 22 at Noon ET to make its first appearance on national television for the season.
The game is part of a home-and-away series that saw Indiana win last year’s meeting in Westwood as both teams played in the NCAA Tournament last season. That begins a three-game swing of contests on the network followed by the league opener on Dec. 28 (6 p.m. ET) versus Michigan State and at Rutgers on New Year’s Eve (3 p.m. ET).
IU will be featured five times in the month of January against Illinois (Jan. 6, 7 p.m. ET) and three road contests at Iowa (Jan. 12, 5 p.m. ET), at Maryland (Jan. 20, 8 p.m. ET) and at Penn State (Jan. 23, 8 p.m. ET) before returning home for a nationally televised game against Minnesota (Jan. 27, 6 p.m. ET). The battle for the Barn Burner Trophy will also be featured on this year’s TV slate, as Indiana travels to Purdue (Feb. 3, 6 p.m. ET) and against Maryland in Bloomington (Feb. 6, 8 p.m. ET).
