NCAA Basketball: SEC Tournament-Alabama vs Kentucky Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning BBN, these are your Wednesday morning quickies. The complete schedule has been announced for the basketball team, which we had a pretty good idea of aside from in-conference play.

Now we know the full schedule, which gives us some details, like closing the season against co-champion Texas A&M. We also discovered that there aren’t any Thursday-Saturday combos, which will be great as the season wears down and the team hits the stretch drive in SEC play. On top of all that, we know the time and channel for each game as well.

To see the entire schedule, check out our look at it here.
