LSU Releases 2015-16 Basketball Schedule

On Wednesday afternoon LSU unveiled its upcoming basketball schedule, a slate that includes two dates with SEC powerhouse Kentucky.

LSU basketball released its 2015-16 schedule on Wednesday, confirming a number of known non-conference games and bringing to light the 18-game SEC slate for the Tigers.

Johnny Jones, entering his fourth year leading the program, will lead the Bayou Bengals into home tilts with South Alabama, Wake Forest and Oklahoma, among others. LSU will also play at College of Charleston and Houston on top of taking a trip to Brooklyn to face Marquette and then either Arizona State or NC State.

In conference play the Tigers draw powerhouse Kentucky twice, hosting John Calipari's Wildcats in the SEC home opener Jan. 5 and then playing at Rupp Arena on March 5 in the league's regular-season finale.



One game rumored to be in the making that did not come to fruition is LSU vs. Memphis, which at least one athletic administrator told TSD would be in Baton Rouge this season if it were to come to pass.
