RICHMOND, Ky. — Eastern Kentucky men's basketball has revealed its non-conference schedule for the 2021-'22 season that includes ten home games, rivalries, a three-team invitational and road trips to West Virginia and Southern California.

The Colonels will open on November 9th against Georgetown College. While they played in an exhibition game in 2017, this will be the first regular season match-up for the two schools since 1960.

EKU will host James Madison, Albany and Eastern Illinois in a three team invitational, round robin event in late November.

After a road trip to West Virginia on November 26, the Colonels will play the rivalry game against Western Kentucky, then visit Southern California before returning home to face both Northern Kentucky and Marshall.

Season tickets are on sale and start out at $59. They can be purchased online at
