The TCU men’s basketball team has home dates scheduled against Tennessee — as part of the annual Big 12/SEC Challenge — and ranked rival SMU as well as a Thanksgiving tournament in Cancun, Mexico, on their non-conference schedule.
The Horned Frogs have 13 nonconference games, including nine at home. Five of those games will be against teams that made postseason tournaments.
TCU’s annual Purple and White game will open the home offerings at the newly renovated Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.
The regular season opens Friday, Nov. 13, against Southeastern Louisiana followed by a Nov. 19 game against Houston Baptist and South Dakota State on Nov. 21.
Never miss a local story.
The Frogs are in Cancun on Nov. 24 against Rhode Island and the following night against either Maryland or Illinois State before returning home to host SMU on Dec. 2 and Colgate on Dec. 5.
Road games Dec. 8 at Washington and Dec. 23 at Bradley sandwich home games with Prairie View A&M on Dec. 11 and Abilene Christian on Dec. 20.
TCU ends its nonconference schedule with games Dec. 28 against Delaware State and Jan. 30 against Tennessee in the Big 12/SEC Challenge, a series in which TCU is 2-0 with wins over Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
