Frankfort, Ky.—Three non-conference homes games, a spot in the Bellarmine Classic, and a Saturday evening affair at the Exum Center with rival Central State University, highlighted the unveiling of Kentucky State University men's basketball 2016-17 schedule on Monday.

"Four of the teams we play are perennial Top-25 teams, in Bellarmine University, University of Southern Indiana, University of Indianapolis, and Kentucky Wesleyan College. When our players saw our schedule, they were extremely excited about getting the opportunity to compete against the best."

The season will tip off on Nov. 15 with KSU hosting the first of three non-conference home games against the University of the Cumberlands (Nov. 15). Followed by 20-plus game winner each of the last five years in UIndy (Nov. 26), and Lindsey Wilson (Dec. 10).

In the latter part of December, the Thorobreds will compete in the Bellarmine Classic, facing off against the Knights (Dec. 16) and USI (Dec. 17).

The Thorobreds will begin the SIAC portion of the schedule with three straight road contest against Paine College (Nov. 30), Claflin University (Dec. 1), and defending conference tournament champions Benedict University (Dec. 3).
