The 2017 SEC men's basketball schedule was released today, and your defending SEC Champion Aggie Basketball team (pause for effect)...
...has a stout schedule on their road to a repeat.
The Aggies will kick off their home slate on a Thursday night on SEC Network against Tennessee, and conclude with a Saturday matchup against Kentucky at 11AM on CBS. The final home game against Kentucky will be a rematch, with an early season Super Tuesday game at Rupp on ESPN at 8PM. In addition to Tennessee and Kentucky, the Aggies will also host LSU, Arkansas, Geogria, Vanderbilt, Mizzou, Auburn, and Alabama.
After 8 conference games, the Aggies will face a very tough West Virginia team in the SEC/Big 12 challenge on the road. That game will tip at 11am on ESPN.
The Aggies will have plenty of opportunities to shine in front of the Reed Rowdies against some pretty talented teams this year, but the downside to the home schedule is that the majority of the good games are in the middle of the week. If the Aggies are able to take care of business in the non-conference games and come away with a tournament title from the Wooden Legacy, those mid-week home games should be nice and rowdy for Billy Kennedy's squad.
