Auburn to host North Alabama to begin the 2020-2021 Basketball Season

NCAA Basketball: Louisiana State at Auburn Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

We are 197 days away from the first basketball game of the season!

This morning, we learned when Auburn Basketball would make their triumphant return to the court, as well as their opponent.

This game will mark the collegiate debuts for newcomers Sharife Cooper, Chris Moore, Justin Powell and J.T. Thor.

The Lions and Tigers will meet for the 2nd time in program history, with their only meeting coming back in January 2015, an 82-61 Auburn win. This however will be the first time the schools play while UNA is a Division 1 school as the Lions moved up to the Atlantic Sun Conference and Division 1 back in the 2018-2019 season. North Alabama went 13-17 last season.

The game marks the first confirmed date on the Auburn Basketball, other than the Orlando Invitational, which will be held during Thanksgiving.

November 10 - North Alabama

November 26-27, 29 - Orlando Invitational

TBD - Murray State

TBD - South Alabama

TBD - at Washington

With 18 SEC games and 31 games total, this leaves 6 more spots left to fill on the non-conference schedule.

Personally, I love these games against in-state foes and wouldn’t mind seeing another one or two on the schedule.
