The SEC basketball schedule was announced on Aug. 10. Some changes that you'll see right off the bat (you can check out the full schedule on SECSports.com) are two new teams to familiarize yourself with—Missouri and Texas A&M—as well as a new 18-game schedule.
The season commences Jan. 8 and ends on Mar. 9. That's 61 days of games, storylines and other basketball greatness.
Missouri and Texas A&M come to the conference from the Big 12, and both have seen success in recent years. Kentucky head coach John Calipari told ESPN he now believes seven SEC teams will make the NCAA tournament.
We'll have to wait and see just how legitimate that claim is, but right now, we'll look at the most intriguing matchups in 2013.
