SEC Network unveiled its full women's television slate and non-conference men's schedule for the 2020-21 campaign, with regular season games and postseason play set for SEC Network this season. In addition, SEC Network+, the digital companion to SEC Network, will stream several women's and men's matchups throughout the season. All schedules are subject to change and additional network designations are forthcoming.

The SECN men's schedule tips off with a doubleheader on Wednesday, Nov. 25, with Kentucky hosting Morehead State at 6 p.m. ET and Jacksonville State taking on Alabama in Tuscaloosa. For the men, Tennessee was voted the overall preseason pick for the first time since the 2008-09 season. SEC play is set to begin Tuesday, Dec. 29 and SEC Network's conference TV slate will be announced at a later date.

On the women's side, non-conference action begins on Sunday, Nov. 29 at 4 p.m., with Kentucky hosting Belmont. Defending SEC champion South Carolina was picked to defend its title and will start the season as the top-ranked team in the AP Preseason poll for the first time in program history. Conference play starts up before the ball drops on New Year's Eve, as Ole Miss and the Gamecocks battle in Columbia at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 31, with Arkansas at Kentucky immediately following at 8:30 p.m. on SECN.

SEC Network will provide wall-to-wall studio coverage surrounding the 2021 SEC Women's Basketball Tournament in Greenville, S.C. and the 2021 SEC Men's Basketball Tournament in Nashville, Tenn., with the early rounds of both on SEC Network for complete Champ Week coverage. Since SEC Network launched in 2014, every men's conference basketball game has been made available on national television.

All games on ESPN networks are available to stream on the ESPN App, which is accessible on computers, smartphones, tablets and connected devices to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider.
