The Southeastern Conference unveiled its 126-game men’s basketball schedule for the 2016 season.

 

From SEC:
 
The SEC welcomes four new coaches to the league in 2016 – Alabama’s Avery Johnson, Florida’s Michael White, Mississippi State’s Ben Howland and Tennessee’s Rick Barnes. As a group, the SEC’s 14 coaches have posted a winning percentage of better than 65 percent while winning nearly 4,600 games.
 
Six players who earned All-SEC honors in 2015 return for 2016, including first team All-SEC selections Stefan Moody (Ole Miss), Danuel House (Texas A&M) and Damian Jones (Vanderbilt). Fourteen of the top 25 scorers from 2015 are slated to return as well as 10 of the top 20 rebounders and six of the top 10 playmakers.
 
Kentucky (2), LSU (3) and Texas A&M (6) each have recruiting classes that rank among the top six of ESPN’s Recruiting Nation Class Rankings for 2015. Twenty of ESPN’s 2015 Top 100 recruits signed with SEC schools, including nine of the top 35 players. The class is highlighted by LSU’s Ben Simmons, who is ranked the No. 1 player in the class, and Kentucky’s Skal Labissiere, who is ranked No. 2 in the class.
 
Each of the games will be available to be seen from anywhere in the nation. The SEC Network will televise 71 games, ESPN or ESPN2 will televise 31 contests, ESPNU 18 and CBS Sports six. The SEC’s games on ESPN platforms are exclusively branded as the “SEC on ESPN.”

 
All of the games included in the ESPN package (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and SEC Network) will be available through WatchESPN, accessible online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app, and streamed on televisions through Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, Xbox 360 or Xbox One to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider. Each of the CBS Sports games will be streamed on CBSSports.com across computers, tablets and smartphones and on the CBS Sports mobile app.
 
The SEC Network will televise the first three days of the SEC Basketball Tournament (March 9-13) from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The semifinals and championship game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
