Leatherneck Men's Basketball Releases Schedule
Western Illinois men’s basketball released its 2013-14 schedule. This season the Leathernecks will play twelve games on Waste Management Court inside of Western Hall. Fans of the team will be happy that this year the team only plays two home games over winter break compared to six in 2012.
The team has a challenging schedule this season including road games against the Big 10’s Nebraska Cornhuskers on November 12 and a couple tournaments that will feature games against UTEP and Utah State.
The team will also take on Summit League newcomer the Denver Pioneers.
Last season the Leathernecks were Co-Summit League regular season champions for the first time since joining Division I basketball. They lost to runner up North Dakota State in the second round of the Summit League Tournament.
