ATHENS - First the SEC got rid of divisions for men's basketball. Now it appears likely to add two more games to the conference schedule.
The league is "reviewing an 18-game schedule" to begin in the 2012-13 season, according to Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity.
McGarity said the move to 18 was discussed and basically approved at last month's meeting of SEC athletics directors in Orlando.
"It's under review right now but I probably think it might (be approved)," McGarity said.
The addition of two games to the league slate would alleviate some scheduling concerns that arose out of getting rid of divisions. Before this year, every team played a division foe twice, and teams from the other division once, equaling out to an even 16 games.
The league would like to preserve certain rivalries, balancing that against building a fair rotation of games.
"That is the piece that's being discussed now. How does that (new schedule rotation) work," McGarity said.
