MSU Men's Basketball TV Schedule 2022-2023


MSU begins the season with its home opener tonight against Northern Arizona at 7 p.m. Eastern Time on BTN+. 

Tom Izzo (the Legend of Iron Mountain), leads his team into the first game on real television 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 6:30 p.m. 

Spartan hoops games can be viewed through some local cable services as well as discounted plans via DIRECTV, DISH and DIRECTV Stream services.

A very 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 Conference matchup of the season. That game will air on Big Ten Network.

Altogether, MSU will have 22 games on national television, such as on 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+.

Michigan State's full 2022-2023 television schedule is below, including announced TV channels and times thus far.
