Birmingham, Ala. – The Southeastern Conference unveiled its 126-game men’s basketball schedule for the 2021-22 season on Thursday.

Conference play tips off Wednesday, December 29, and runs through Saturday, March 5. Each SEC team plays the other 13 teams at least one time during league play. They will then play their three permanent opponents a second time with the remaining two games changing annually. The ninth annual Big 12/SEC Challenge will take place on Saturday, January 29.

Six SEC teams received NCAA Tournament invitations in 2021 and the league advanced a team to the Elite Eight for the ninth time in the last 11 NCAA Tournaments. The SEC’s 21 NCAA Tournament selections over the last three tournaments are the second-most in the nation.

The SEC Tournament returns to Tampa, Fla., when Amalie Arena hosts the event from March 9-13, 2022.

Television information and start times will be announced at a later date.
