LSU basketball releases non-conference schedule

By CODY WORSHAM | Tiger Rag Editor

LSU released its non-conference schedule for Will Wade’s first season at the helm on Thursday, highlighted by a Nov. 20 clash with Michigan in Maui.

The Tigers open the Wade era Nov. 10, a Friday night, against Alcorn State, with eight of their 12 non-conference contests taking place inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. In addition to three neutral site games at the Maui Invitational Thanksgiving week, LSU will also travel to Memphis on Dec. 28 for the first leg of a home-and-home with the Tigers.

“The non-conference schedule will be challenging for us and is filled with teams coming off very good seasons a year ago. That includes five home games against teams that won 20 plus games last year and vied for post-season berths,” Wade said in a statement. “We know our opening game with Alcorn, the night before the LSU-Arkansas football game, is one that we want all our fans to be at the Maravich Center to experience what LSU basketball is now about.”

Here’s the full non-conference schedule:
