Upon first glance, this looks like a solid schedule with some known teams in the out of conference slate — Tulsa,  DFW rival SMU, Big 12 opponent Kansas State, and La Salle from the Atlantic 10.

When you dig further into this schedule, you see a few Wednesday/Friday and Friday/Sunday conference basketball games. Hopefully this is an experiment Conference USA is trying to see if this has a positive impact on attendance. I’m not a fan of this and hopefully we don’t see more of this in future seasons. Conference USA is also continuing to have most Men’s/Women’s games be played at the same time thus making it difficult to follow both sports at the same time.

There will be two doubleheaders with the Men’s team this season.
