AAC basketball pairings

PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — The American Athletic Conference has announced pairings for the 2017-18 men’s basketball schedule.

The league’s 12 members will play an 18-game schedule and each team will face seven of its 11 opponents twice, while it will play four remaining opponents once each — two at home and two on the road.

Tulsa will face UConn, East Carolina, Memphis, USF, Temple, Tulane and league newcomer Wichita State both at home and on the road this upcoming season. The Golden Hurricane will host UCF and SMU and travel for road matchups at Cincinnati and Houston.

Tulsa’s 34 conference wins since entering the league prior to the 2014-15 season are tied for the third-most during that span behind only SMU (44) and Cincinnati (41).

Game dates and times will be announced at a later date.
