SEMO men's basketball releases 2015-16 schedule

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Southeast begins the Coach Rick Ray era of Southeast Redhawks men's basketball and will play a 29 game schedule in 2015-16 which includes eight non-conference road matchups and begins with six of the first seven games on the road.

"I would venture to say that our non-conference schedule will be the most challenging of any Ohio Valley Conference institution," said Ray. "Not only are we playing quality opponents, but we are playing the majority of those opponents on the road in very tough environments. With our eight newcomers, a difficult non-conference schedule should prepare us for the rigors of OVC competition."

Southeast opens the season at Dayton and marks the first-ever meeting between the schools. Dayton advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament a year ago and were 27-9 overall. They currently own a 22 game home winning streak.

Southeast has a total of 14 home games in its newly renovated Show Me Center and will host Loyola Marymount, Bowling Green, Ole Miss, Harris-Stowe and Hannibal-LaGrange in non-league action.

Ole Miss will be the first SEC opponent to play at the Show Me Center.

The Redhawks schedule also includes 16 OVC games-8 home and 8 away games.
