The LSU Tigers announced their non-conference opponents and schedule for the upcoming men’s basketball season, reports NOLA.com.
The slate opens Nov. 12 at home against Wofford and climaxes over Thanksgiving weekend at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas, where LSU is guaranteed a game against Wichita State and could play Louisville or Old Dominion in the second game and Baylor, VCU, Michigan State or St. John’s in the third.

Although they’ll spend the first part of the holiday season in the Bahamas, the Tigers don’t truly hit the road until three days before Christmas Day, for a game at Wake Forest. They’ll have played seven home games before closing out the non-conference slate with two away from Baton Rouge.
That second one, however, doesn’t come until almost a month after the typical non-conference season ends. The Tigers will face Texas Tech in Lubbock during the SEC season as a part of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.

- Nov. 12 vs. Wofford
