Covenant Men's Basketball Team Unveils Schedule

Thursday, September 05, 2013

The 2013-14 Covenant men's basketball team, under head coach Kyle Taylor, recently unveiled this season's schedule. The Scots will play 25 contests with 14 of those coming inside the USA South Athletic Conference.

The scheduled is highlighted with a trip to Minnesota in December and an exhibition against NCAA Division I member Chattanooga on November 8 along with the first year of play in the USA South.

"After five years of futile attempts I am really excited to have UTC on our schedule," said Taylor who will enter his fifth year as the head of the program. "This will be UTC's home opener in their newly refurbished arena, with a great new coach in Will Wade. The atmosphere will be incredible for our guys and hopefully a lot of Covenant students, faculty and staff, and alumni will come to the game."

The Scots then open the season at Berry on November 15 followed by a tilt with Emory & Henry, in Rome, Ga., the next day. The 2013-14 home opener is scheduled for November 20 against Sewanee.

Covenant will travel to Minnesota on December 6-7 to take on Crown and Bethany Lutheran before coming home to play Berry and Birmingham Southern to finish the semester.

USA South play opens up on January 3 against Ferrum on Lookout Mountain. Covenant will play its first four conference games at home. The final regular season contest is set for February 22 at home against LaGrange.

"Having a conference is so huge for our guys, and we are especially excited about being a full active member of the USA South Athletic Conference and NCAA Division III," added Taylor. "Getting to play for a conference championship and a spot in the postseason will be a great experience for our student athletes."

The top eight teams in the final USA South regular season standings will qualify for the conference tournament held at the end of February. The top seeded team will be the host for the three-day event.

Covenant finished 13-11 last season marking the first winning season since 1998-99.
