Eleven games at the Liacouras Center, a game against Duke at the Wells Fargo Center and at least 14 television appearances highlight Temple’s 2011-12 men’s basketball schedule, announced Tuesday.
The Owls, who return four starters from last season’s 26-8 squad, will play eight Atlantic Ten Conference home games. They will take on Central Michigan (Dec. 3), Villanova (Dec. 10) on Buffalo (Dec. 28) in nonconference games there.
The Owls will play a minimum of eight games on ESPN entities, starting with their Nov. 17 contest against Western Michigan on ESPNU in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off opener. Temple will also play three national televised games on the CBS Sports Network, while three conference games will be CBS College Sports Network regional telecasts.
