YES has an agreement with the Big East to televise up to 10 basketball games from the reborn basketball-focused conference that includes Georgetown, Villanova and Butler.
The ACC deal with YES Network comes a few weeks after the conference announced a deal with the Pinstripe Bowl in Yankee Stadium that starts in 2014, and is part of a strategy to expand the league's presence in the New York media market.
