The Big Ten Network has announced their 2017 conference basketball television lineup, and the Fighting Illini will be featured 14 times this Winter. Although that'a a little bit more than I was expecting, it's at least in line with what we've seen in recent seasons. The remaining 4 games (at Maryland, at Indiana, Maryland, at Rutgers) will presumably be picked up by either ESPN or CBS.
