With the start of the season just over a week away, the NBC Sports Network released its broadcast schedule for the 2013-14 campaign. The schedule tips off on November 14 when Temple visits CAA preseason favorite Towson, and the first month of the season will be headlined by the Battle 4 Atlantis event.

Teams taking part in that tournament (November 28-30) include Iowa, Kansas, Tennessee, Villanova and Xavier. Also of note that weekend is the Barclays Classic, with NBCSN broadcasting the semifinal between Ole Miss and Georgia Tech on the 29th and both the consolation and championship game on the 30th. Also playing in the event are Penn State and St. John’s.

NBCSN will also broadcast conference games from the Atlantic 10, CAA and Ivy League, with an A-10 doubleheader kicking off that portion of the slate on Sunday, January 5. George Washington visits Saint Joseph’s at 1:00 p.m. EST, followed by Dayton visiting Saint Louis.

To wrap up the schedule NBCSN will broadcast the CAA tournament semifinals and title game (March 9-10), and all four quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 tournament on March 14.
