HOUGHTON, Mich. – Michigan Tech men’s basketball announced its 2021-22 schedule on Monday (July 12). The Huskies will play 27 games this winter with 18 conference matchups and 14 at SDC Gymnasium on campus.
Tech begins with a trip to Lewis University where they will play a pair of games against opponents to be determined on November 12-13. Other teams in the tournament include McKendree University, Lewis University, and Northern Michigan. A one game jaunt to non-conference Minnesota Crookston follows on November 20. Then the Huskies host Minnesota Duluth and St. Cloud State from the Northern Sun Conference November 27 and November 28 respectively.
Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play begins at Northwood December 4. Two days later, Tech’s rivalry with Northern Michigan is renewed at SDC Gymnasium on December 6. The Huskies swept the Wildcats in the season series 2-0 last winter. Michigan Tech women’s basketball plays first at 5:30 p.m. EST with the men at 7:45 p.m. It is also the first in a string of seven straight home games, which includes Lake Superior State (December 9), Ferris State (December 11), Finlandia (December 15), Winona State (December 20), and Wisconsin-Parkside (January 6).
The Huskies have 17 days of rest over the Holiday break, then play 16 straight games against conference foes, taking on each opponent twice.
