Sports

Birmingham, Ala. – The Southeastern Conference unveiled its 2020 men’s basketball schedule on Tuesday.

All of the games included in the ESPN package (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and SEC Network) will also be available through the ESPN App, which is accessible on computers, smartphones, tablets and connected devices to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider. CBS Sports’ coverage will be available to stream live via the CBS All Access subscription service, with additional coverage on CBSSports.com and CBS Sports HQ.

Conference play tips off January 4 and runs through March 7. Each SEC team plays the other 13 teams at least one time during league play. They will then play their three permanent opponents a second time with the remaining two games changing annually. The seventh annual SEC/Big 12 Challenge will take place on Jan. 25.

Kentucky (3), Georgia (5), Florida (12), Alabama (17) and Auburn (21) each have recruiting classes that rank among the top 25 of ESPN’s RecruitingNation Class Rankings. Eighteen of ESPN’s Top 100 recruits signed with SEC schools, including 11 of the top 50 players.

Seven SEC teams were selected to participate in the NCAA Tournament this past season with four advancing the Sweet 16, two to the Elite Eight and one to the Final Four. The SEC has had 15 NCAA Tournament selections over the past two years and every team in the league has appeared in the tournament over the last five years.

The SEC Tournament returns to the Music City when Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., hosts the event March 11-15, 2020.
