"The SEC is a tough league and we have some tough teams coming into Auburn Arena this season," said Auburn's new head coach, Terri Williams Flournoy. "It gets you going to get the schedule finalized because you know the season is just around the corner and we can't wait to get out and play in front of the Auburn Family."
The schedule for each SEC team features a single round-robin format with one permanent team and two other opponents each team will face twice during the season. Auburn's permanent opponent is Alabama. For this season Tennessee and Missouri are the teams the Tigers will play home-and-home.
After posting a 3-1 record in their exhibition tour to Australia this month, the Tigers will face Arkansas, Ole Miss, LSU, Florida and Mississippi State at home this season. Auburn will travel to Texas A&M, Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia and Vanderbilt.
The Tigers will open league play at home on Jan. 3rd against an Arkansas team that made the NCAA Tournament. Florida and Georgia also made NCAA Tournament trips last year while Texas A&M and South Carolina advanced to the Sweet 16. Tennessee and Kentucky, who the Tigers play back-to-back in mid-January, both made the Elite Eight.
The 2013 SEC Women's Basketball Tournament will be held at the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga., from March 6-10 with all 14 teams participating.
