BIRMINGHAM, Ala.- The 2015 women’s basketball conference schedule has been released by the Southeastern Conference office. Texas A&M’s schedule is highlighted by 11 televised contests, including an ESPN2 Big Monday matchup with South Carolina on Jan. 26. A&M beat South Carolina 67-65 in overtime during the schools' only matchup in 2013-14.
Due to New Year’s Day being on Thursday, the traditional start day of conference play, the first day of SEC action has been moved to Friday, January 2, when the Aggies tip off the conference season by hosting Vanderbilt. The Aggies then embark on a two-game road swing to Arkansas (Jan. 4, 12:30 p.m., ESPNU), and 2014 SEC Tournament Champion Tennessee (Jan. 8, 6 p.m., SEC Network).
The Aggies return home on Sunday, January 11 to host LSU (11 a.m., ESPNU), then host Ole Miss on Jan. 18 (4 p.m., SEC Network). A&M heads on the road for back-to-back weekday games, playing at Georgia (Jan. 22) and at 2014 SEC Champion South Carolina on Big Monday (Jan. 26, 6 p.m., ESPN2).
Reed Arena hosts five games in February, as Auburn (Feb. 1), Arkansas (Feb. 12, 8 p.m, SEC Network), Alabama (Feb. 16, 6 p.m., SEC Network), Florida (Feb. 22, 3 p.m., SEC Network) and Missouri (Feb. 26) pay a visit to College Station. The Aggies visit Missouri (Feb. 5, 8 p.m., SEC Network), Mississippi State (Feb. 8, 2 p.m., SEC Network), and Kentucky (Feb. 19) during February.
