On Wednesday, the Big 12 announced the conference schedule for the 2018-19 men’s basketball season and Shaka Smart’s Texas Longhorns will kick their conference slate off on Jan. 2 on the road against Kansas State. Texas will return home days later on Jan. 5 for their first conference home game of the season with West Virginia coming to Austin.

Aside from a mid-February meeting against Oklahoma State, which will be televised nationally on CBS, the Longhorns entire Big 12 schedule will be televised on the ESPN family of networks.

The Longhorns entire Big 12 schedule can be seen below:

Last season, the Longhorns fell to Nevada in the first round of the NCAA Tournament after compiling a 19-14 record to reach the Big Dance, including an 8-10 effort in the Big 12. Entering 2018-19, the Longhorns return several starters and key contributors, including seniors Kerwin Roach II and Dylan Osetkowski, and sophomores Matt Coleman and Jericho Sims.

Former Mount St. Mary’s transfer Elijah Mitrou-Long will join the rotation this season as well, where he’ll join Jase Febres and potentially Andrew Jones in the backcourt. The Longhorns also added the nation’s No. 8 recruiting class to the roster, which features four-star floor general Courtney Ramey and Team USA U18 selection Kamaka Hepa.
