Union College has released their men's basketball schedule for the 2015-16 season.
Here's a release from UC:
BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - Union men's basketball head coach Kevin Burton has announced the Bulldogs' 2015-16 schedule; which features 12 home dates, two tournaments and an exhibition matchup with a NCAA Division I opponent.
Union is coming off the most successful season in program history in which they finished ranked 11th in the final NAIA Division II Coaches' Poll. In 2014-15, the Bulldogs posted a program-best record of 30-5, won Appalachian Athletic Conference Regular Season and Tournament Championships for the second season in a row while accomplishing something no Union basketball team has done at the national level.
At the NAIA Division II National Championships, the Bulldogs defeated Northwestern Ohio 64-58, for the first win program history on the national stage. In the Round of 16, Union bowed out of the tournament to eventual National Semifinalist Embry-Riddle (Fla.), 89-75, completing the historic campaign.
The Bulldogs will look to build off of last season's successful campaign as they open the 2015-16 season with Boyce (Ky.) on Oct. 27. The action is scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip-off inside Robsion Arena.
The home contest is one of only three games Union will host during the first two months of the season.
Union will travel to Marion, Ind., Nov. 6-7, to participate in the Caleb Dimmich Memorial Classic. In the classic, the Bulldogs will face Indiana Wesleyan and IU-East, both teams finished ranked in last season's coaches' poll.
One matchup that highlights the Bulldogs schedule is Nov. 8, as they travel to NCAA Division I Eastern Kentucky for an exhibition contest. This is the first matchup against an NCAA Division I opponent since 2009, when Union faced off against Tennessee Tech.
