Notre Dame releases men’s basketball schedule for 2020-21 season
NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The University of Notre Dame men’s basketball program has released the schedule for the 2020-2021 schedule.
The start of the season has been delayed due to COVID-19.
“My feeling is, your schedule strategy for your (NCAA) resume – that is all out the window,” said Head Coach Mike Brey. “Let’s play. Let’s get our kids playing and hopefully we can play most of the 27 games. We want to go for it and schedule big and exciting games for our kids.”
Notre Dame will start the season at No. 13 Michigan State Saturday, November 28, renewing a historical rivalry with the Spartans that dates back to 1908.
Western Michigan will visit Purcell Pavilion on December 2 for the 2020-21 home opener.
“You don’t throw these kinds of games on the board in the non-league unless you think you have a group that you can have some fun with,” Brey said. “We wouldn’t schedule like this unless you saw, at the end of last year, the lightbulb go on for some of our young players, especially our juniors.”
Attendance policies and game start times will be released at a later date.
