A total of 28 home games highlight the 2009-2010 Southwest men's and women's basketball schedule which was released today.

Both teams will start their season against outstanding competition, with the men traveling to Chicago, Illinois, for the Kennedy-King College Tip-Off Classic, and the women journeying to Eunice, Louisiana, to play in the Lady Bengal Classic.
