Missouri releases conference portion of men’s basketball schedule
Tuesday, August 20, 2013
The pieces keep falling into place, as the question marks on the schedule start to slowly disappear for the Missouri men’s basketball team.
The latest group of questions was answered Tuesday when the Southeastern Conference released its league schedule.
The Tigers’ first SEC game this season comes Jan. 8 when they open at home against the Georgia Bulldogs. That’s one of five teams Missouri will meet in a home-and-home series, the others being Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
In single-game meetings, Missouri will host South Carolina, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Texas A&M, while the Tigers will play road games at Auburn, LSU, Florida and Mississippi.
ESPN has network flexibility on four of Missouri’s SEC games. The game at Vanderbilt (Jan. 16) and home games with Alabama (Jan. 18), Arkansas (Feb. 13) and Tennessee (Feb. 15) will air on either ESPN or ESPN2. The network will make that designation as the dates for the games get closer.
The Tigers will have four games on the SEC Network, and affiliate information for those games will be announced by the league office as the games approach.
The latest information means Missouri has filled out start times for all but 13 games on the schedule, including the season opener Nov. 8 at Mizzou Arena against Southeastern Louisiana.
