Along with Liberty's current TV schedule, the Flames could also appear on ESPNU, this season, as they are elgible for both of the network's wild card selections.

The Liberty men's basketball team will have 22 regular-season games broadcasted on a combination of ESPN3, the Liberty Flames Sports Network (LFSN) and the Big South Network during the 2013-14 season.

In addition to the planned television schedule, two of the Flames' contests could potentially appear on ESPNU, as Liberty's home contests versus Gardner-Webb and Radford are being considered for "wildcard" selections. If selected, these games will air on the network exclusively with the announcement being made 21 days prior to the contest. The Flames' contest with the Runnin' Bulldogs would air on either Feb. 11 or 12, while the game versus the Highlanders would move to Feb. 28.

Two of Liberty's road contests are slated to air on ESPN3 in February. The Flames will take on Charleston Southern inside Buccaneer Field House on Feb. 1 in a rematch of the 2013 Big South Championship Final. Liberty's second ESPN3 contest will take place at Campbell on Feb. 22.

ESPN3 will also broadcast the quarterfinals and semifinals of the 2014 Big South Championship on March 7 and 8. The title game will once again air on ESPN2 on March 9.

LFSN is currently set to televise 11 of the Flames' home games at the Vines Center, plus road games at Furman (Dec. 20), Radford (Jan. 8) and High Point (Feb. 19). The network's TV schedule could change with an ESPNU selection. Nick Pierce and Tim Scarborough will provide play-by-play and color commentary, respectively, while the trio of Matt Hildebrand, Dan Manley and Paul Nazigian will contribute halftime analysis.

For the first time in 2013-14, games will be video streamed live for free on the Big South Network presented by State Farm. In total, Liberty will appear on the Big South Network 22 times during the regular season. The Big South Network will also cover the first round of the 2014 Big South Championship.

Liberty's first televised game of the season will be its Nov. 18 home contest against UNCW. The matchup between the Flames and the Seahawks, set for a 7 p.m. tipoff, will air on LFSN and the Big South Network.

Additional broadcast platforms for the current schedule listed below will be announced at a later date.
