After having its first two games of the 2020-21 cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Men’s Basketball team will officially tip off its season in Las Vegas on Saturday when it faces top-ranked Baylor in the #VegasBubble at T-Mobile Arena.

Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. CT. The game will be streamed live on a pay-per-view basis through with fans able to listen to the game on KPEL 96.5-FM.

Louisiana, picked to finish second in the Sun Belt Conference West Division and third overall, returns to Las Vegas after splitting a pair of games last season in the MGM Resorts Main Event. The game against Baylor (No. 1 Coaches Poll | No. 2 Associated Press) marks the first-ever contest for Louisiana against a top-ranked opponent and its ninth against a team ranked in the top-5.

The Ragin’ Cajuns will face a yet-to-be-named opponent in their second game out west on Sunday before returning to face New Orleans on Wednesday at Lakefront Arena.

More information will be made available as further details are released.
