Alabama will open the conference portion of its schedule in Coleman Coliseum against Texas A&M on Saturday, Dec. 30, as the Southeastern Conference unveiled the 2017-18 men’s basketball composite league schedule on Thursday. Tip times along with TV selections will be released at a later date.

The Crimson Tide has 18 games on its league slate in addition to its 13-game non-conference schedule, which was announced in mid-July. Alabama’s conference slate will have mirror starts and finish with the Tide playing three of its first and last five games on the road. However, Alabama will have a stretch in the middle of league play where it will play five home games in a seven-game stretch.

The Tide’s home-and-home opponents for the upcoming season include Texas A&M (Dec. 30 in Tuscaloosa and March 3 in College Station, Texas), LSU (Jan. 13 in Baton Rouge, La., and Feb. 13 in Tuscaloosa), Auburn (Jan. 17 in Tuscaloosa and Feb. 21 in Auburn, Ala.), Mississippi State (Jan. 20 in Tuscaloosa and Feb. 6 in Starkville, Miss.) and Florida (Feb. 3 in Gainesville, Fla., and Feb. 27 in Tuscaloosa).

Along with its home-and-home contests, the Tide will have a home schedule which includes South Carolina (Jan. 9), Missouri (Jan. 31), Tennessee (Feb. 10) and Arkansas (Feb. 24).

Additional road games will consist of Vanderbilt (Jan. 2), Georgia (Jan. 6), Ole Miss (Jan. 23) and Kentucky (Feb. 17).

The SEC Tournament will be played west of the Mississippi River for the first time when the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo., hosts the event from March 7‐11, 2018.
