Tulane Men’s Basketball conference schedule, TV assignments revealed
NEW ORLEANS – The Tulane men’s basketball team’s complete 2019-20 season schedule was revealed in its entirety Friday in conjunction with the announcement of the American Athletic Conference slate with national television designations.
All 18 conference games will be televised nationally, including 13 on ESPN’s family of networks and five on CBS Sports Network. Eight contests will be aired on ESPNU with five on ESPN3.
Under first-year head coach Ron Hunter, the Green Wave tip off league play with three of its first four games on the road, beginning with a 12:30 p.m., start at Memphis on New Year’s Eve for a CBS Sports Network broadcast.
Tulane starts the New Year at home for its lone matchup against Cincinnati Jan. 4 before heading out back-to-back road games at UConn (Jan. 8) and Temple (Jan. 11).
The Green Wave closes the first month of conference action with three of their next four matchups at home, including UCF (Jan. 14), Tulsa (Jan. 18) and USF (Jan. 29) with a weekend trip to East Carolina (Jan. 25) mixed in between.
February begins at SMU (Feb. 1), before Tulane’s lone matchup at reigning regular season champion Houston (Feb. 6).
The Olive and Blue closes out the regular season with five of their final eight games at home, including East Carolina (Feb. 8), Temple (Feb. 12), SMU (Feb. 19), Memphis (Feb. 29) and UConn (March 8) in the finale. Road games during that stretch include tilts at Wichita State (Feb. 16), UCF (Feb. 22) and Tulsa (Feb. 25).
Hunter, who was named the program’s new head coach in late March, has led his teams to the NCAA Tournament in three of the last five seasons while his 445 career wins make him the winningest coach to ever lead the Green Wave.
The Green Wave’s roster features the return of letterwinners Ray Ona Embo, Buay Koka and Kevin Zhang who lead a crop of 10 newcomers including Ibrahim Ali (Arkansas), Teshaun Hightower (Georgia), K.J. Lawson (Kansas), Nic Thomas (Norfolk State), Christion Thompson (Rhode Island) and Jordan Walker (Seton Hall). Tulane’s freshman core comprises Nobal Days, R.J. McGee, Tylan Pope and Charlie Russell Jr.
