Mark Your Calendars!
We already knew the league opponents for home and road games — but on Wednesday, the SEC announced the conference basketball schedule for the 2022-2023 season.
For the second year in a row, Mizzou will open their league slate against Kentucky. Welcome to the SEC, Dennis Gates.
It’s unfortunate not only that it’s such a tough game to start the SEC out with, but it falls on December 28th — which is during Mizzou’s Winter Break, of course. It doesn’t get any easier as the Tigers’ second conference game is at Arkansas on January 4th.
Three of Mizzou’s first five SEC games are on the road, followed by three out of their next four at home — starting with Trevon Brazile’s return to Columbia on January 18th.
Here’s a look at Mizzou Basketball’s full conference schedule, and you can read more on MUTigers.com.
Our own Matt Watkins has some analysis on Mizzou’s toughest stretch of the season:
Tigers open the season with a very manageable stretch in November. Then...— Order On The Court (@DataMizzou) September 7, 2022
Illinois (St. Louis)
Eyeballing it, that's 4 Quad 1 games, 2 Quad 2...and SEMO.

And from last night’s “Tiger Talk” Week 2 edition with Eli Drinkwitz, Bush Hamdan, and Brady Cook — Jackson Meyer was in attendance providing live-tweeting coverage. Give this thread a read:
I’ll be providing some extra coverage of tiger talk tonight. Going to attempt to relay some key talking points from Eli, will keep y’all up to date. Will be this thread.— Jackson ✈️ (@JacksonMeyer21) September 7, 2022
