Cougars release basketball schedule
When the Cougars open the season with an exhibition contest against Concordia on Nov. 6, the first 18 games will be played at Hofheinz Pavilion.
UH starts the regular season three days later against Florida A&M. Most of the early portion of UH’s schedule is at home, where the Cougars will play 10 of their first 14 games.
The Cougars will face the neighboring Texas Southern University at Hofheinz on Dec. 8.
UH will initiate an old Southwest Conference rivalry when the team takes on Texas A&M on Dec. 1 at home in perhaps the headlining game on their schedule.
“Playing a rival like Texas A&M in Hofheinz Pavilion will be one of the highlights of our home schedule,” said UH head coach James Dickey. “This was a tremendous rivalry when both teams played in the Southwest Conference, and we look forward to resuming this series with the Aggies.”
UH has not squared off against A&M since 2004.
Conference play begins on Jan. 9 against SMU at home. The Cougars face hometown rival Rice on Jan. 30 at Tudor Fieldhouse and March 6 at Hofheinz Pavilion.
UH will begin workouts for this season on Oct. 12.
