WACO, Texas - A Ferrell Center record-tying 18 home games, including ESPN contests against Kansas and Oklahoma, highlight Baylor's 2008-09 men's basketball schedule released Monday.

The Bears have played 18 home games at the Ferrell Center two times. In 2006-07, BU went 13-5 at home and 11-7 in 1999-2000.

Baylor, coming off a 21-11 season that culminated in the Bears making the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 20 seasons, will play 10 games on the ESPN family of networks. Baylor's schedule also features eight 2008 NCAA Tournament participants - Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Portland State, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas-Arlington and Washington State. The Bears could play one additional 2008 NCAA participant - Cal State Fullerton or Saint Mary's (Calif.) - depending upon the outcome of the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif.

"This will be the most televised schedule in Baylor history," head coach Scott Drew said. "It is a credit to what the players and fans have been able to achieve in this rebuilding process.

"We have a very solid schedule that includes as many as nine NCAA Tournaments teams from last season. Our non-conference schedule will help us prepare for what's going to be an exciting Big 12 Conference season."
