The University of Toledo men’s basketball program opens its 2020-21 campaign at the Xavier Invitational in Cincinnati on Nov. 25-27.

The Rockets’ remaining nonconference schedule includes home games against Cleveland State on Tuesday, Dec. 1, Kansas City on Saturday, Dec. 12, and Valparaiso on Saturday, Dec. 19, and a road contest at Marshall on Wednesday, Dec. 16. Toledo also will be playing one Mid-American Conference contest in December when it visits Eastern Michigan on Friday, Dec. 4.

The Rockets open January with a pair of road games at Western Michigan on Saturday, Jan. 2, and Kent State on Tuesday, Jan. 5, before playing its first MAC home contest against Ohio on Saturday, Jan. 9.

At this time, it is uncertain whether fans will be allowed to attend games. Information will be provided once that determination has been made.

Senior guards Marreon Jackson and Spencer Littleson are expected to lead a deep Toledo athletic squad in the 2020-21 campaign. Jackson earned second-team All-MAC honors last year after averaging 19.8 points per game and setting a school record with 99 three-point field goals. Littleson also averaged in double digits at 10.5 points per game and will be joined in the backcourt by 2019-20 All-MAC Freshman Team member Keshaun Saunders.
