quote:

The Tigers will potentially play five teams that advanced to post-season play a season ago and seven teams that won at least 17 games on their 2020-21 season schedule.

The schedule will open with a flurry with five games at the Maravich Center in a 14-day period. LSU will face ULM on Nov. 9, followed by Texas State (Nov. 12), Liberty (Nov. 15), McNeese (Nov. 18) and Belmont (Nov. 22).

Liberty won 23 games and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2021, while Belmont posted a 26-4 record a year ago. The McNeese game is scheduled as part of the Emerald Classic in Niceville, Florida, which LSU will be participating over Thanksgiving weekend.

LSU will play Penn State on Friday, Nov. 26, in the Emerald Classic, which will be played at Raider Arena at Northwest Florida State College. LSU will either play Wake Forest or Oregon State on the second day of the tournament, Nov. 27. Oregon State won 20 games a season ago and advanced to the Elite 8 before falling in the NCAA Tournament. Read more.

This is actually a pretty tough non conference schedule if you compare it to other sec teams schedules over the years. What makes it tough is the games that people will expect to win because of the opponents name, but there good teams. It’s heavy with no win situation games . If you win you were supposed to if you lose they get laughed at

Great mix of teams. These teams have strengths in different areas and will be great to make us sharp.

Wish they'd schedule that Niceville tournament on a non- football weekend. But what do I know.

There are some really good mid majors on that schedule. You guys just don’t know. Belmont, Liberty, and Lipscomb each have some pretty great shooters. I wouldn’t be completely shocked if the list 2 of those games.

No way we go undefeated against that schedule , their are some good tournament teams from last year in their. We will lose one and that’s a great start if so

Probably a good thing with such a young team allowing them to come along slowly and feel things out. Next year I imagine a tougher schedule
