Trojan’s 2016-17 Basketball Schedule Set

The Little Rock Trojans today released the final portion of their schedule with the non-conference games now set. The season kicks off on November 11th against Central Baptist.

First year coach Wes Flanigan has a challenging schedule in front of him, although not quite as daunting as the one Chris Beard faced last year. The big highlight on the schedule is a trip to Gainesville on December 21st to face off against the Florida Gators. Like last year’s big trip to Texas Tech, the final non-conference matchup is the biggest. Florida is projected by some outlets to finish as high as second in the SEC, although all outlets project the SEC to have a down year in basketball.

The rest of the road schedule is far easier with a return visit to Northern Arizona, a new series that starts on the road against Oral Roberts and the Lone Star Showcase tournament that will feature Central Michigan, Pepperdine, St. Bonaventure, Sam Houston State, and Southern Illinois.


The Trojans host four in state schools at home with Central Baptist, University of the Ozarks, UAPB, and continue the two game home and home series against UCA.

Rounding off the schedule is a visit from Tulsa, the only team on the Trojan’s schedule who also played in the NCAA tournament last year, and the final part of the series against Iowa.
