LSU will open the 2016-17 season on Nov. 12 when the Tigers host the Southern Conference’s Wofford in the PMAC.
Including Wofford, LSU added seven home games in November and December as the Tigers’ non-conference schedule was released on Tuesday.
LSU will compete in three home games against Wofford, Southern Miss on Nov. 15 and North Florida three days later before the squad departs for the Bahamas’ “Battle 4 Atlantis” tournament on Nov. 23-25, beginning with a Nov. 23 meeting against Wichita St. at 11 a.m. in Imperial Arena.
The Tigers will finish November against Houston as the back-end of the home-and-home series. Houston defeated LSU in the Tigers’ second overtime game last season, 105-98. Like Houston, LSU was also defeated by Wake Forest, 71-77, last December, and the College of Charleston, 58-70, on Nov. 30, 2015.
LSU’s only remaining non-conference game is against Texas Tech on Jan. 28 as part of the Southeastern Conference/Big 12 challenge.
The Tigers’ SEC schedule is expected to be released toward the end of August.
