Big Ten Announces 2021-22 Women's Basketball Schedule

This is every conference matchup slated for this coming season.

The Big Ten announced a full breakdown of its 126 men's basketball conference games slated for the 2021-22 season. Each of the 14 conference schools will compete in a 18-game Big Ten schedule.

The Big Ten season is set to begin on Dec. 5, with 12 games being played between Dec. 5-12. After Dec. 12, there will be a break in conference play until Dec. 30. Each school will play five teams twice — once at home and once on the road — and eight teams once, with four played at home and four away.
