Schedule unveiled; former forward finds pro gig

The Cougars will up the ante in non-league play, as they announced their 28-game schedule Tuesday.

“This is an outstanding non-conference schedule for us,” head coach Todd Buchanan said in a release. “The good news is, with such a young team coming in, we have the luxury of playing the majority of these games at Hofheinz. We’ll have some incredible challenges, which at the end of the day is how you become a consistent top 25 team, and we’re going to continue to raise the bar.”

More than half of the Cougars games will be on their home floor, with 16 contests being hosted at Hofheinz Pavilion.

“Our alumni season ticket holders really stepped up last year, but our student body has to come out and support,” Buchanan said.

“We desperately need them to come out and create a positive atmosphere for us and make it hard for the opposition.”
