Southwest 2011-12 Basketball Schedule Released

Southwest Men's Basketball Coach Verties Sails Jr. and Women's Basketball Coach Andrea Martre have released their basketball schedules for the 2011-12 season. In addition to an 18 game Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA) slate, the Saluqis and Lady Saluqis will also take on several impressive non-conference foes.

Both teams will open the season with an exhibition game against the Southwest Alumni on October 29 at the Verties Sails Gymasnium. The men will play a second exhibition game on October 30 against the Spirit Express, also at the Verties Sails Gym.

The regular season opener for the Southwest men will be on November 3 against New Horizon Prep at the Verties Sails Gym. The Saluqis follow that with a trip to Chicago, Illinois, November 5-6 for the Kennedy-King College Tip-Off Classic.

TCCAA play begins the next weekend with Southwest traveling to Chattanooga State on November 12 and Cleveland State on November 13. The first home conference games will be against Walters State on November 19 and Roane State on November 20.

The women's team will play in two "classics" this season - the Georgia Perimeter Thanksgiving Classic November 26-27 in Atlanta and the Lady Saluqi Classic December 28-29 at the Verties Sails Gym.

Dyersburg, Tennessee, will be the site of the 2011 TCCAA/NJCAA Region VII Tournament March 2-6. Tournament champions will advance to the NJCAA National Tournament March 15-19 (men at Hutchinson, Kansas; women at Salina, Kansas).
