The American Athletic Conference has released its men’s basketball schedule, and Temple will play newcomer Wichita State both home and away this season.
There are 12 AAC teams, and each plays an 18-game conference schedule. That means facing seven teams twice (once home and once away) and four others once. The dates and times of the games will be released at a later date.
The seven teams Temple will play twice are Central Florida, Cincinnati, UConn, Houston, Tulane, Tulsa, and Wichita State. The Owls will play East Carolina and Memphis at home only. They will face South Florida and SMU once on the road.
Temple is coming off a 16-16 season in which the Owls fell to East Carolina in the first round of the AAC Tournament. This season, with point guard Josh Brown having earned a medical redshirt and a highly touted freshman class, Temple is expected to be improved in a league in which Wichita State will be among the favorites.
