LSU basketball announces 2017-18 non-conference schedule
Baton Rouge, LA – A trip to the Maui Invitational and the start of home-and-home series with Houston and Memphis highlight a 12-game non-conference schedule for Coach Wade and the Tigers.
The season will begin on Friday night, November 10, against Alcorn State in a game the night before LSU's SEC football game with Arkansas in Tiger Stadium on November 11.
“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,” said Coach Wade. “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.”
