CBS Sports has agreed to a multi-year agreement with the Big Ten Conference, extending its broadcast rights to the conference's basketball games through the 2016-17 season. The announcement was made Thursday by Mike Aresco, Executive Vice President, Programming, at CBS Sports and James E. Delaney, Big Ten Commissioner.

The agreement, beginning with the 2011-12 season, calls for a minimum of 24 appearances on CBS by teams from the Big Ten, including three Big Ten wildcard weekends. CBS Sports will also continue to broadcast the Big Ten Tournament semifinal and championship games.

Purdue has appeared on CBS Sports 22 times over the last four seasons, including four times in 2010-11. The CBS/Turner partnership also televised the Boilermakers' two games in the 2011 NCAA Tournament.
