Fox College Hoops (Fox CBB) is the branding used for Fox Sports broadcasts of college basketball for Fox, FS1 and FS2. Formally college basketball telecasts have also been carried by the Fox Sports Networks (FSN) in the past (sometimes generically under the title College Hoops), the Fox College Hoops branding was introduced in 1994.
Games on Fox and FS1 include rights to the Big East, Big Ten, and Pac-12, as well as the early-season Fort Myers Tip-Off, Las Vegas Invitational, Crossroads Classic and Las Vegas Classic.
In 2013, Fox reached a 12-year deal to broadcast games from the Big East Conference (whose non-football schools had broken away from the conference under the Big East name, with the remainder becoming the American Athletic Conference). CBS Sports sub-licensed rights to additional Big East games, mostly airing on CBS Sports Network.
Since 2014, as part of its contract with the conference, Fox holds rights to 22 Pac-12 basketball games per-season, and splits coverage of the Men's basketball tournament with ESPN and Pac-12 Network.
In 2014, the main Fox broadcast network first aired the early-season Las Vegas Invitational and Las Vegas Classic events. The following year, Fox Sports acquired both events outright.
In 2017, Fox added coverage of selected Big Ten Conference games as part of a larger six-year contract, alongside ESPN and CBS, which had also given it rights to the conference's top football package.
Beginning in the 2020–21 season, Fox holds a share of the Mountain West Conference's basketball and football packages, split with CBS. To open the 2021–22 season, Fox aired six simultaneous Big East games on November 9, 2021, with all games streaming online, and "whiparound" coverage airing on FS1. Also that night, Fox debuted a new graphics package specific to its college basketball broadcasts across Fox, FS1, FS2 and the Big Ten Network.
The network also planned an unconventional broadcast for a November 23 game featuring Mark Titus and Tate Frazier (of the Fox Sports-distributed podcast Titus & Tate) commentating the game in the style of a podcast.
On December 7, 2018, it was announced that Fox would use John Tesh's "Roundball Rock"—the theme music of the former NBA on NBC—as its theme music for selected telecasts during the 2018–19 season. The music became permanent for every game that aired on either of the 3 Fox Sports networks (Fox, FS1, and FS2) for the 2019–20 season and beyond.
