Tulane Men’s Basketball unveils 2018-19 non-conference schedule
NEW ORLEANS – Tulane men’s basketball third-year head coach Mike Dunleavy, Sr., announced the team’s non-conference schedule for the 2018-19 season.
The slate features 12 games, including six home contests, five neutral site matchups and one road tilt.
After welcoming Loyola-New Orleans for an exhibition on Nov. 1, the Green Wave tips off the regular season with three consecutive games at Avron B. Fogelman Arena in the Devlin Fieldhouse, with the first coming on Wednesday, Nov. 7 against FIU. Tulane will then welcome Florida State on Sunday, Nov. 11 for the final event for homecoming weekend, as the Seminoles reached the Elite Eight of last year’s NCAA Tournament.
Green Wave will play three games at Germain Arena in Estero, Florida as they compete in the Gulf Coast Showcase which will be held Nov. 19-21.
Tulane concludes the first month of the season with a home matchup against another team that competed in last year’s NCAA Tournament when reigning Sun Belt Conference champion Georgia State rolls into town on Nov. 28.
The Green Wave begins December with back-to-back home games against Southeastern Louisiana (Dec. 1) and a first-time battle with UT Martin (Dec. 5). The Wave’s lone road trip on the docket will be a return game at South Alabama (Dec. 8).
After final exams are completed, Tulane faces Prairie View A&M in its final non-league home tilt, before heading to Atlantic City, N.J., for a pair of games Dec. 21-22 in the “Battle at the Boardwalk” tournament. The Green Wave takes on Towson in the first contest and will face either La Salle or Alabama A&M the following day.
