BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - The Union’s men’s basketball team, led by second year head coach Kevin Burton, looks to build on a 15-14 (8-8 AAC) season last year, announced its 2013-14 schedule on Thursday.
The Bulldogs will open their 2013-14 slate at Robsion Arena on Oct. 29, hosting Boyce (Ky.). Following a non-conference tilt at Alice Lloyd (Ky.) on Nov. 2, Union dives into AAC play, hosting Point on Nov. 9, followed up by a trip to Milligan (Tenn.) on Nov. 12.
After playing in the Kentucky Christian Super 8 Classic on Nov. 15-16 against Miami-Hamilton (Ohio) and host KCU, respectively, the Bulldogs play four straight AAC games, three of which will be at home. The run of games starts Nov. 20, when the Bulldogs host Montreat (N.C.), followed up by another home conference contest against the AAC’s newest member Truett-McConnell on Nov. 23.
After a trip to Virginia Intermont on Nov. 26, the Bulldogs open the month of December at home against the two-time defending AAC Tournament Champion Tennessee Wesleyan on Dec. 4. After taking part in the Zweifel/Pritchett Classic at Asbury (Ky.), taking on Welch (Tenn.) and Ohio Christian on Dec. 6 and 7, respectively, Union’s will play their last game of the calendar year on Dec. 14 at rival Cumberlands (Ky.).
After a lengthy Holiday break, Union opens the new year on Jan. 4, hosting AAC-foe St. Andrews (N.C.). In January, the Bulldogs will host seven games at Robsion Arena, with four games against AAC-foes, along with out-of-conference tilts verses Alice Lloyd (Jan. 8), Crown (Tenn.) (Jan. 13), and Hiawassee (Tenn.) (Jan. 27).
The final month of the season will be totally different for the Bulldogs, however, as the team only hosts one game at Robsion Arena the entire month (Feb. 19 vs. Bryan (Tenn.)). The team will hit the road for five games in February, ending the regular season on Feb. 22 at Reinhardt (Ga.).
The 2014 AAC Tournament will once again be played at the Marriott MeadowView Hotel and Convention Center in Kingsport, Tenn, running from Feb. 26-Mar. 1.
