FRISCO, Texas – The 57th season of Southland Conference men’s basketball tips off at 10 a.m. CT on Wednesday, Nov. 25, when Abilene Christian takes on East Tennessee State in Estero, Fla., as part of the Gulf Coast Showcase.

Airing on FloHoops, the contest is one of 96 broadcasts across the ESPN Networks and various other platforms on the slate of television and streaming games for the 2020-21 season. Coverage will also be provided for each matchup in the Southland Conference Tournament, set to take place March 10-13 at the Leonard E. Merrell Center in Katy, Texas. The Southland title game on March 14 will be featured on ESPN or ESPN2.

Picked to finish third in the league’s preseason poll, Sam Houston State commences the season at Lone Star State foe SMU on ESPN+. Nicholls, who came in at fourth in the predicted order of finish, starts the year against UC-Davis in the Santa Clara Tournament.

Northwestern State begins its campaign against No. 14 Texas Tech at 6 p.m. in Lubbock, Texas, and Lamar is also tasked with playing a ranked team in No. 17 Houston. Both games will air on ESPN+.

Additional matchups include Houston Baptist visiting TCU and McNeese taking on Nebraska. Rounding out the opening day matchups is Southeastern Louisiana at IPFW and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi hosting Texas A&M-International.

New Orleans will spend Thanksgiving in Provo, Utah, to face BYU, and UIW doesn’t tip off until Friday, when the Cardinals host Rice in the UIW Invitational. Following the cancellation of the Justin Reed Classic, hosted by Ole Miss, Central Arkansas will not embark on its season until Dec. 1 against Missouri State.

Preseason conference favorite and reigning regular-season champion Stephen F. Austin, who was slated to play three games in Bubbleville at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn, will tip off against Hardin Simmons on Dec. 2. That game will also be on ESPN+.
