Tulane’s non-conference slate also features matchups at Florida State (Nov. 17), at Texas A&M (Dec. 14) and a crosstown meeting with the of New Orleans (Dec. 21).

“We could not be more thrilled about the start of the 2021-22 season,” said third-year head coach Ron Hunter. “Our schedule will provide a number of great tests both at home and on the road to prepare our team for AAC competition. We really believe that we have the pieces in place within our program to compete at a high level in the American Athletic Conference and we can’t wait to get started.”

In addition, the Green Wave is set to compete in the Baha Mar Hoops Nassau Championship in the Bahamas (Nov. 22-24). Toledo, Charlotte, Drexel, Abilene Christian, Jacksonville State, Coastal Carolina and Valparaiso will comprise the field of the Nassau Championship. All games will be played at the Baha Mar Convention Center and can be viewed on FloHoops.
