Auburn basketball finalizes full 2017-18 schedule

Auburn basketball is done planning and searching for a final opponent.

The Tigers released their complete schedule for the 2017-18 season on Monday morning. Previously the SEC announced the full conference schedule and Auburn filled its last slot with a road game at Murray State. Highlights include a home game against four-time national champion UConn as well as a matchup with UAB at Auburn Arena.

Other highlights include an appearance in the 2017 Gildan Charleston Classic, where Auburn could see Dayton or Clemson.

“It’s all about challenging your team,” said Pearl in a statement. “Letting them know that you believe in them. Winning and getting better throughout the season.  With four neutral site and two road games, half our schedule is away from Auburn Arena, and that is an RPI booster.”

The Tigers’ conference schedule is highlighted by February meetings with Alabama and Kentucky on the Plains. Below is the full schedule.
