Baylor MBB Releases 2021-22 Non-Conference Schedule

September 7, 2021

WACO, Texas – Baylor men’s basketball 19th-year head coach Scott Drew announced the Bears’ 2021-22 non-conference schedule on Tuesday. The 13-game slate includes eight games at the Ferrell Center, two road contests and three neutral-site games in the Battle 4 Atlantis.

The Bears will receive their 2021 National Championship rings and unveil the championship banner in a pregame ceremony prior to the Friday, Nov. 12 season opener against Incarnate Word at the Ferrell Center. 

BU continues its season-opening four-game homestand with matchups against Nicholls State (Monday, Nov. 15) and Central Arkansas (Wednesday, Nov. 17), followed by a Big 12/Pac-12 matchup against Stanford (Saturday, Nov. 20).

The Bears then head to the Bahamas for the 2021 Bad Boy Mowers Battle 4 Atlantis. BU is part of an eight-team field featuring Arizona State, Auburn, UConn, Loyola-Chicago, Michigan State, Syracuse and VCU. Baylor opens the Battle 4 Atlantis against Arizona State (Wednesday, Nov. 24), then plays to-be-determined opponents on Thursday, Nov. 25 and Friday, Nov. 26.

Baylor returns home to play four of five December games in the Ferrell Center. The Bears begin the month against Arkansas-Pine Bluff (Saturday, Dec. 4), followed by consecutive games against high-major opponents with a Big 12/Big East showdown in Waco against Villanova (Sunday, Dec. 12) and another Big 12/Pac-12 matchup on the road at Oregon (Saturday, Dec. 18).

BU rounds out the calendar year with home games against Alcorn State (Monday, Dec. 20) and Northwestern State (Tuesday, Dec. 28). The Bears’ final regular-season non-conference game is a road trip to take on Alabama in the Big 12/SEC Challenge on Saturday, Jan. 29.

The Big 12 Conference will announce the league portion of the 2021-22 schedule at a later date. Teams are expected to begin conference play the first week of January, and the 2022 Big 12 Championship will be played March 9-13 at Kansas City’s T-Mobile Center.
