SEC SET FOR EXCITING SEASON
From the SEC office
The 2015 women's basketball conference schedule has been released by the Southeastern Conference office.
Due to New Year's Day being on Thursday, the traditional start day of conference play, the first day of SEC action has been moved to Friday, January 2. The regular season will end on Sunday, March 1, with the SEC Tournament being played Wednesday, March 4 - Sunday, March 8 in Little Rock, Ark. The SEC Network will televise the first three days of the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament while the semifinals will be aired on ESPNU, and with the championship game on ESPN.
The schedule consists of a single round robin (10 games) and home and away with one permanent opponent (2 games) and two rotating opponents (4 games). The permanent opponents are Alabama-Auburn, Arkansas-Missouri, Florida-Georgia, Kentucky-South Carolina, LSU-Texas A&M, Ole Miss-Mississippi State, and Tennessee-Vanderbilt. Each team will play eight home games and eight away games. The rotating opponents changes annually. This marks the sixth year of the 16-game schedule for women's basketball and the third with 14 teams.
