The American Athletic Conference released its men’s basketball schedule Friday morning along with television assignments and start times.

The Shockers open and close their 18-game conference slate at home with a New Year’s Day matinee against ECU and a rivalry game against Tulsa on Sunday, Mar. 9. In between, WSU will play host to seven teams that qualified for 2019 postseason play.

Marquee dates mark the January calendar. As previously announced, the Shockers will host Ole Miss on Saturday, Jan. 4 as part of the new American-SEC scheduling alliance. Memphis brings its highly-touted freshmen to Charles Koch Arena on Jan. 9. Defending AAC champion Houston (Jan. 18) advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 last March, and UCF (Jan. 25) came within a shot of joining them in the tournament’s second weekend.

February brings visits from Cincinnati (Feb. 6), Tulane (Feb. 16), USF (Feb. 20) and Temple (Feb. 27). Cincinnati and Temple were NCAA tournament teams last year, and USF won the CBI championship.

For the third-consecutive year, all 18 of WSU’s conference games will air nationally. The Shockers are booked for 24 total appearances during the regular season, with 18 games on the ESPN family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPNEWS) and six on CBS Sports Network.

YurView Kansas will air the seven remaining non-conference games, along with the team’s Oct. 29 exhibition against Northeastern State. Cox subscribers can tune in on channel 2022.

All WSU Men's Basketball games will air on 103.7 KEYN.
