LSU’s 2020-’21 home schedule was finalized Friday afternoon when the SEC released the conference’s basketball schedule for all 14 schools.

The Tigers will open up SEC play at home against Texas A&M on December 29. The Aggies are one of five SEC teams LSU will play both inside the PMAC and on the road. The other four teams LSU has a home-and-home with are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Georgia.

LSU’s other four road opponents this year are Missouri (January 9), Kentucky (January 23), Mississippi State (February 10) and Ole Miss (February 17).

The regular season concludes for LSU March 2 against Vanderbilt. The SEC Tournament will be held March 10-14, once again inside of Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

LSU will host 14 games inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center this season, nine against SEC opponents and five outside the conference. Ticket information and the PMAC’s capacity policies will be announced in the coming days.

LSU’s season officially begins November 25 in a multi-team event (MTE) in Lincoln, Nebraska. Who LSU will play has yet to be announced, but LSU will play on November 25, 26, and 28. The Tigers will open the PMAC 11 days later against the Bulldogs of Louisiana Tech. The two were originally scheduled to play in CenturyLink Center in Bossier City, but that was ultimately pushed back due to the NCAA rescheduling the beginning of the 2020-21 basketball season. Due to the schedule being pushed back LSU will only play 27 regular season games instead of 31.
