Coming off a historic 36-1 season, ending with an NJCAA Division II National Championship, Southwestern Head Coach Todd Lorensen has announced the ‘17-’18 men’s basketball schedule for the Spartans.

The 30-game regular season schedule includes 15 home games and six games versus NJCAA Division I opponents. 

“I like the make-up of our schedule,” stated Lorensen. “It was important to me to have more home games than last year, but I still wanted a good number of D1 road games.”

Southwestern opens their season on November 1 as they host Graceland JV at 7:30 p.m. The Spartans’ first four games will be played on their home court before traveling to Central Nebraska in Columbus for a weekend tournament. 

“We play in an extremely tough league,” mentioned Lorensen. “Our non-conference schedule is set up to prepare us for the rigors of needing to play well night in and night out in league play.”

The Spartans open up conference play in the ICCAC as they host Iowa Lakes on January 13, 2018, at 3 p.m. To view the Spartans full schedule, please visit:
