CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri State University’s men’s basketball team will play 27 games with 12 matchups at the Show Me Center for the upcoming 2020-21 season.

SEMO starts its first season under Head Coach Brad Korn at the Negro League Baseball Museum Tip-Off Classic in Kansas City, Mo. on November 27-28. The Redhawks face Northern Colorado on Nov. 27 and either host Kansas City or Avila College on Nov. 28.

“I’m excited for the challenge our schedule presents,” said Korn. “This year we pushed everything back and our furthest game is a five-hour bus ride. It was more important for our team to stay local, stay safe and get some good competitive games that will prepare us for the Ohio Valley Conference.”

The OVC also released its conference game schedules.
