Southeastern Conference releases 2020-21 Men's Basketball schedule

November 6, 2020

Do you hear those faint sounds of squeaking shoes and a ball bouncing on hardwood? College hoops is close, very close.

On Friday, the Southeastern Conference released its 126-game schedule for the 2020-2021 men’s basketball season, which will officially begin on December 29. Each of the 14 member programs will play each other at least once during league play in their respective 18-game slates. The SEC also included an open window (the weekend of March 6) to allow for any make-up games as a result of cancelations involving COVID-19 protocols.

Texas A&M will begin its SEC run on Dec. 29 as the Aggies will travel to Baton Rouge to face preseason-No. 22 LSU. The Aggies’ first home conference game falls on January 2 as the Auburn Tigers travel to Aggieland.

The Aggies last beat Kentucky in 2018.

Perhaps looming most ominous on the schedule is a February 23 trip to Lexington to face John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats at Rupp Arena. Once again, the Wildcats are a preseason top-five team. Last February, the Aggies fell to Kentucky, 69-60, at Reed Arena. Texas A&M has not won at Rupp Arena since 2013, losing their last four trips to Big Blue Nation.

Start times and television information has not yet been released for any of the SEC contests.

A year ago, many believed Texas A&M could have gone winless in SEC play following a lackluster non-conference showing, but first-year head coach Buzz Williams quickly turned his team around as the Aggies finished with a 10-8 league record. This season, A&M figures to be much more competitive from the beginning of the year.

College basketball will make its triumphant return on November 25. Williams and A&M will begin their season with West Virginia in the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic. The Aggies and Mountaineers will tip-off at 1 p.m. CT on ESPN from the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, SD.

As usual, the SEC Tournament will be held in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena. The event will be played March 10-14, 2021.
