Tom reported last Friday on the non-conference schedule taking shape for our men’s basketball team. No changes have been made to the matchups we knew of at that point. However, we now know the full schedule as Vanderbilt dropped it this morning.

I’ll leave the hard-hitting hot take to Tom, but to me the biggest change is UNC Asheville getting added. UNC-A and Austin Peay were both added in as part of the NIT Season Tip-Off which we knew was coming. Both those games will be at Memorial Gym.

Otherwise we’re looking at Radford, Houston Baptist, and Alcorn getting added in. Vanderbilt has not played any of those teams before, and I know about nothing about them. Tom was dead on regarding the timing of these games too by the way.

All in all, it looks like a good set of games, I’m looking forward to it!
