Vanderbilt men’s basketball releases 2021 nonconference schedule

[ad_1]

The Vanderbilt men’s basketball team announced its 2021 nonconference schedule Thursday, including its opening matchup against Alabama State on Nov. 10.

In addition to two already-announced matchups — at Pitt on Nov. 24 and at the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii before Christmas — the Commodores will play 2021 tournament teams VCU, Winthrop and Loyola-Chicago. Pitt, however, is Vanderbilt’s only power-conference nonconference opponent, which could hurt the team’s NET score come Selection Sunday.

Home opponents: Alabama State, Texas State, VCU, Winthrop, Mississippi Valley State, Temple, Loyola-Chicago, Austin Peay

Away opponents: Pitt, SMU, Hawaii

The Commodores, which played a limited non-conference schedule last year due to COVID-19, also played Mississippi Valley State in 2020 and won, 84-41. They were set to play SMU, but the game was canceled due to the virus.
