MBB: 2015-16 Big 12 schedule released

 Open at Oklahoma? Why not.

 Close at Kansas? Bring it on.

 The Big 12 released its 2015-16 men’s basketball schedule today and that’s how Steve Prohm‘s Iowa State Cyclones begin and finish the 18-game slate.

 Iowa State, a consensus preseason top-10 selection, may be picked to finish behind both the Sooners and Jayhawks by coaches once conference media days roll around, so the challenging start and finish (not to mention a slew of quality foes in between) makes goal setting and hardening that chip on their shoulder even easier.

 Below, find ISU’s news release regarding the schedule announcement. 

The following is a news release courtesy of ISU Athletics Communications: 

AMES  – The Iowa State men’s basketball team and the Big 12 Conference announced the team’s 2015-16 conference schedule today. All of Iowa State’s conference games will be televised on the ESPN family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU) for the second year in a row.

The 18-game round double-round robin schedule starts on Saturday, Jan. 2 as the Cyclones hit the road to face Oklahoma. The Cyclones will also close the regular season on the road in a showdown against Kansas on Saturday, March 5.

The Big 12 Championship will be played March 9-12 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. The non-conference schedule was previously released.
