NEW ORLEANS – The Tulane men’s basketball team will conduct an official team practice open to the public on Saturday, October 12 at Avron B. Fogelman Arena in the Devlin Fieldhouse, providing Green Wave fans an opportunity to get their first look at the 2019-20 team.

Doors open at 12:30 p.m., just over two hours prior to the football team’s kickoff against the University of Connecticut. Spectators are asked to use the entrances along McAlister Drive.

Head coach Ron Hunter enters his first season at the helm of the Tulane program and has led his teams to the NCAA Tournament in three of the last five seasons. 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.

Fans can get their hands on season tickets starting at just $75 – a $50 reduction from last year. That means fans can lock up a seat for every home contest for as little as $5 each.

All sections are available for purchase so you can customize your viewing experience from your favorite seating location. Discounts are also available for Tulane faculty and staff.
