Season Opener Set.

It looks like we missed this news from a couple of days ago, but according to Rocco Miller, Mizzou Basketball’s season opener will take place on November 7th against Southern Indiana from the OVC — who will be making their D1 debut.

Southern Indiana joins kansas, Illinois, Iowa State, and potentially Liberty on Mizzou’s non-conference schedule — as DataMizzou’s Matt Watkins notes.

Watkins added a little more background on Southern Indiana as they are no stranger to playing Power Five opponents — at least in exhibitions. Plus, some history on Mizzou Basketball coaches making their debuts.

On the women’s side, the conference home and road opponents were announced for the upcoming basketball season. Here’s a breakdown for Mizzou:

The home-only opponents are Florida, LSU, Mississippi State, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt.

The road-only slate is highlighted by a match up with the defending National Champions South Carolina, along with Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M.

Meanwhile — Arkansas, Alabama, and Kentucky are the home and road opponents.
