STORRS, Conn. (Aug. 28, 2014) --- Six games against teams that reached the NCAA Tournament, two more against the NIT runner-up, and appearances at the venues of new American Athletic Conference members Tulsa, Tulane and East Carolina highlight the 2014-15 conference schedule of the UConn men’s basketball team, announced today by the league office.

The Huskies will play home-and-home series against conference heavyweights Cincinnati, Memphis, and Tulsa, which all made the NCAA tourney last season, as well as two games against NIT runner-up SMU, one a nationally-televised contest on CBS, and the other as part of ESPN GameDay.

The 2013-14 National Champion Huskies will have a fully-televised schedule, including two games on CBS, one previously announced at Florida on Jan. 3 and the other against SMU at home on March 1. UConn will make its seventh appearance on GameDay at SMU on Feb. 14. UConn will play at least 11 games on ESPN or ESPN2, six on the CBS Sports Network, and five on SNY.TV. The remainder of UConn’s games will be televised by the ESPN family of Networks.

The breakdown of UConn’s home venues as well as game times will be announced at a later date.

UConn will open its conference season on Dec. 31, playing host to Temple at a time to be determined. The Huskies will travel to new AAC member Tulsa on Jan. 13, to Tulane on Feb. 7, and to East Carolina on Feb. 25. Tulsa visits UConn on Feb. 12, Tulane is at UConn on Feb. 22, and East Carolina comes on Feb. 4.

UConn, finished 32-8 last season on its way to a fourth national championship, and posted a 12-6 record in The American, tied for third place. The Huskies reached the championship game of the conference tournament before bowing to Louisville.

This season’s American Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Championship will take place March 12-15 at the XL Center in Hartford.
