CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston Southern unveiled its 2017-18 non-conference schedule on Wednesday. Visits from Lipscomb and Coppin State, as well as trips to the FIU Tournament, Clemson and Georgia Tech, are among highlights of the 11-game slate.
Six home games and five road contests will prepare CSU for the 18-game Big South schedule, which is expected to be announced on Friday. CSU head coach Fred Applin is excited for a challenging non-conference slate that will test the team heading into conference play.
"Every year it is important for us to have a challenging schedule to prepare our team for the Big South Conference," Applin said. "Our non-conference schedule will prepare us both mentally and physically since we have a very young team. We look forward to a great season and we are working tirelessly to prepare for the 2017-18 basketball season."
The Bucs will tip off the season with a home game against Colombia International on Friday, Nov. 10 before hosting Lipscomb on Sunday, Nov. 12. CSU then continues its four-game homestand with meetings with Toccoa Falls (Nov. 16) and Coppin State (Nov. 20).
Charleston Southern hits the road following Thanksgiving for the FIU tournament where it will play two games over the weekend with opponents to be determined. The Bucs continue their non-conference schedule with a game at ACC foe Clemson on Dec. 2.
Following a break from game action during final exams, CSU will host S.C. State (Dec. 11) and Southern Wesleyan (Dec. 15.) A matchup with ACC opponent Georgia Tech on Dec. 19 will also serve as one of the highlights of the away schedule. The Bucs will conclude non-conference play at Wofford on Dec. 30.
