Alabama Men's Basketball Announces Complete 2022-23 Schedule

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The Alabama men’s basketball team announced its complete schedule for the 2022-23 season Tuesday morning. In addition to the 18 Southeastern Conference games, the Crimson Tide’s non-conference slate includes traditional basketball powerhouse programs such as Gonzaga, Michigan State, Houston, Oklahoma and Memphis which helps make up the 13-game schedule.

 

Alabama will open the 2022-23 regular season with back-to-back home contests beginning Nov. 7 against Louisiana, followed by a Nov. 11 matchup against Liberty. After traveling to South Alabama for a midweek road contest (Nov. 15), the Tide will square off with Jacksonville State at home (Nov. 18) before heading to Portland, Ore., for the Phil Knight Invitational. That event will take place over Thanksgiving weekend as the Tide will open against Michigan State (Nov. 24) and play either Oregon or UConn in the second round (Nov. 25). The event, which also includes two of last year’s Final Four teams in Villanova and North Carolina, concludes Nov. 28.

 

It doesn’t get any easier as the Tide will play four consecutive games against 2022 NCAA Tournament teams in early December, beginning with a home game against Summit League champions South Dakota State Dec. 3. UA will then make the trek to Houston, Texas, to play the return game against the Cougars before coming back to Coleman Coliseum to take on Memphis on Dec. 13. The challenging stretch will conclude with a neutral-site contest against 2021 NCAA Tournament runner-up Gonzaga. The Bulldogs will look to avenge last year’s loss when Alabama came to Seattle and defeated then-No. 3 Gonzaga, 91-82, in the Battle in Seattle.

 

The Tide’s final non-conference game will come on Jan. 28, 2023 when UA travels to Norman, Okla., to square off against the Oklahoma Sooners for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.

 

Six SEC teams, including Alabama, advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2022 as the Tide will face another daunting league slate. The Tide opens conference play on the road at Mississippi State on Dec. 28 before returning home for its first home conference game on Jan. 3 vs. Ole Miss. Alabama will have home-and-home league matchups with Arkansas (Jan. 11 at Arkansas, Feb. 25 in Tuscaloosa), LSU (Jan. 14 in Tuscaloosa, Feb. 4 at LSU), Vanderbilt (Jan. 17 at Vanderbilt, Jan. 31 in Tuscaloosa), Mississippi State (Dec. 28 at MSU, Jan. 25 in Tuscaloosa) and Auburn (Feb. 11 at Auburn, March 1 in Tuscaloosa).

 

In addition to hosting Ole Miss, other league home games for the Tide includes Kentucky (Jan. 7), Florida (Feb. 8) and Georgia (Feb. 18). Sec road games consist of Missouri (Jan. 21), Tennessee (Feb. 15), South Carolina (Feb. 22) and Texas A&M (March 4).

 

Tip times and television designations will be released at a later time.
