CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Both Coastal Carolina University basketball teams now have an updated look at their conference schedules as the season draws closer.
CCU announced the updated Sun Belt slate for both men’s and women’s teams, each following slightly different approaches.
For the men, the conference said teams will now play four games against teams in their own division except for travel-partner teams. Games will also be played back-to-back on Fridays and Saturdays at home sites.
The CCU men will open conference play with four straight home games, two against Georgia State starting Jan. 1 and two against South Alabama the following week.
For the women’s teams, the Sun Belt announced that each team will only play against opponents in their respective divisions. Like the men, games will be played back-to-back on Fridays and Saturdays at home sites.
The CCU women open conference play on the road at Georgia Southern with games starting Jan. 1, and then traveling to South Alabama the following week. The Chants will open their home conference scheduled on Jan. 15 against Georgia State.
The Sun Belt Conference Tournament for both men’s and women’s basketball will each be played in Pensacola, Florida in March, according to the conference.
Non-conference schedules for both CCU programs will also be released at a later date, according to the athletic department.
