BATON ROUGE – The LSU men’s basketball team is scheduled to play 14 home games in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in the 2020-21 season including nine Southeastern Conference games which were announced by the league office on Friday.

Ticket information and capacity policies for the Maravich Center will be announced in the days to come.

LSU will play four home non-conference games in the month of December – Dec. 6 against Louisiana Tech, Dec. 16 against UNO, Dec. 19 versus North Texas and Dec. 22 VCU.

The Tigers and Bulldogs were slated to meet in an independently produced game at the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City, Louisiana later this month but that game has been pushed back to early in the 2021-22 season.

LSU and VCU will be playing the second half of a home-and-home series. The teams met last year Richmond.

LSU is scheduled to play at the Maravich Center on the opening night of SEC play, Tuesday, Dec. 29, against Texas A&M. In January, LSU will host Georgia (Jan. 6), Arkansas (Jan. 13), South Carolina (Jan. 16) and Alabama (Jan. 19). The Tigers will close the month by hosting Texas Tech in the previously announced SEC/Big 12 Challenge.

The Tigers will also host three consecutive Saturday games in February – Florida (Feb. 6), Tennessee (Feb. 13) and Auburn (Feb. 20). The regular season is scheduled to conclude with a game on March 2 at home against Vanderbilt. 

As announced earlier, the league will keep March 6 as an open date for games in case any conference contests need to rescheduled during the course of the year. The Southeastern Conference Tournament is again set for Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, March 10-14.

LSU will open the 2020-21 with three games in Lincoln, Nebraska in a multi-team event (MTE) that will be scheduled for Nov. 25, 26 and 28. Opponents for those games will be announced in the days ahead. LSU is still scheduled to participate in the Holiday Hoopsgiving games on Dec. 12 at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, against USF.

LSU will as usual play five teams in the league both home-and-away – Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia and Texas A&M, LSU’s other four league road games are at Missouri, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
