LSU men's basketball coach Will Wade and his team will play at least 25 games on over-the-air television during the 2021-22 season, the Southeastern Conference announced Thursday.

The LSU men's basketball team received the tip times and television networks for 30 of its 31 regular-season games Thursday.

The Southeastern Conference and its television partners announced start times and networks after the league recently announced its dates for conference games.

A total of 25 LSU games are set to be broadcast on over-the-air television, with five contests to be streamed online by SEC Network+.

The time and television network for the Dec. 18 game with Louisiana Tech in Bossier City have yet to be determined.

Will Wade's team begins SEC play Wednesday, Dec. 29, when it travels to Auburn for a 6 p.m. tipoff in a game to be televised on ESPNU. The home opener with Kentucky will be played Tuesday, Jan. 4, at 6 p.m. on ESPN.

LSU learned Wednesday that its Big 12/SEC Challenge matchup with TCU in Fort Worth, Texas, on Jan. 29 will tip off at 11 a.m. on ESPN2.

Three nonconference home games were picked for over-the-air television. The Tigers will face Northwestern State on Dec. 14 and Lipscomb on Dec. 22, with both games to be televised by the SEC Network, while the Nov. 15 contest with Liberty will be aired on ESPNU.
