Tulane Green Wave Basketball Schedule
At long last the start of the college basketball season is upon us and there
is no better place in the country to be than inside Fogelman Arena, the home of the Tulane Green Wave. Last season the Green
Wave went 8-8 in Conference USA and 17-17 overall, and they are ready to make a big move up the conference standings this
year, their first in the American Athletic Conference. Head coach Ed Conroy is a proven winner and he will have plenty of
talent to work with during the 2014-2015 season including the stellar backcourt of Jonathan Stark and Louis Dabney. Navigating
through the challenging American Athletic Conference is never an easy task but the Green Wave appear to have the talent and
experience to make some serious noise this season. Be sure to get your tickets for all of the Tulane Green Wave's biggest
games from StubHub as soon as possible so you can get some of the best seats in the house.
In their quest to make a
return to the NCAA Tournament this season the Green Wave will have their work cut out for them as they take on many of the
best teams in all of college hoops. The Green Wave have home games at Fogelman Arena against the Loyola New Orleans Wolfpack,
the Wake Forest Demon Decons, the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils, the SUNO Knights, the Southern Jaguars, the Southeastern
Louisiana Lions, the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles, the Mississippi State Bulldogs, the Savannah State Tigers, and the Jackson
State Tigers before conference play even begins. Once American Athletic Conference play gets underway the Green Wave will
host the Temple Owls, the South Florida Bulls, the SMU Mustangs, the Memphis Tigers, the Tulane Golden Hurricane, the UCONN
Huskies, the Central Florida Knights, the Cincinnati Bearcats, and the Houston Cougars. During their mission to leapfrog teams
like UCONN, Cincinnati, and Memphis this season the Green Wave will need every last bit of home court advantage they can get
from all of their biggest fans at Fogelman Arena.
Tulane Green Wave Basketball History
Tulane first sponsored
a basketball team in 1975 and has just recently joined the American Athletic Conference after years of playing in Conference
USA. The Green Wave will be plenty familiar with teams like the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Memphis Tigers who also joined
the AAC after playing in Conference USA for years. The Green Wave has appeared in the NCAA Tournament three times, most recently
in 1995. Every time Tulane has played in the Tournament they have won their first game and lost in the second round.
Tulane Green Wave Basketball Conference
The Tulane Green Wave play in the American Athletic Conference which,
like many other college athletic conferences, has gone under a lot of changes in recent years. However, the American Conference
has only benefited from the realignment with the addition of former Big East powerhouses like the University of Connecticut,
Louisville, Temple, and Rutgers. In addition to those schools, there are seven other members of the conference: Houston, Memphis,
South Florida, Central Florida, Cincinnati, and Southern Methodist. Currently four of the colleges playing in the American
Athletic Conference have won a National Championship: Connecticut, Louisville, Temple, and Cincinnati. Both Louisville and
Connecticut have each won three championships while Cincinnati has won two. The new American Athletic Conference is shaping
up to be one of the most competitive in all of college basketball and any team making it through the tough regular season
schedule with a record good enough to be selected for the NCAA Tournament should be able to make some serious noise in March.
There's nothing like being in the stands when the game is on the line, so ditch the couch, brush
off the potato chips and get ready to see a game you won't soon forget. College basketball has plenty of great games on the
schedule each and every season, from plenty of top-tier regular season battles to Tournament clashes that you'll have to see
first-hand to believe. These are some of the best amateur athletes in the entire world, though that's something that you need
to see for yourself to truly appreciate. Will you be there when your favorite player pulls up for a game-winning three that
will have everyone jumping out of their seat in unison? There is nothing quite like being there with thousands of your fellow
fans as the Green Wave look to pile up the wins and give their fans another memorable season, though that's not something
that you're going to figure out sitting at home wondering what the atmosphere of the big game is like.
the Eighties the Green Wave basketball program was involved in a huge scandal that involved players shaving points in games
in exchange for money and drugs and the school president disbanded the program for years until it was reinstated in 1988.
