Just hours ago, Temple men’s basketball announced their complete 2015-16 season schedule.
In an early test, the team opens up against powerhouse and projected national championship contender North Carolina in the Veteran’s Classic on November 13th. They then head six days later to the Puerto Rico Tip-Off tournament, where the Owls will open up against Minnesota. The tournament is 3 days long. They then travel home to battle Delaware and Fairleigh Dickinson before squaring off with the 2015 NCAA Runner-Up, Wisconsin.
The Owls open their City 6 play against Penn at the Palestra on December 9th. It is only one of two games to not appear on TV for the North Philly team. They play all City 6 schools, with the exception of Drexel.
Temple then opens their American Athletic Conference (AAC) schedule at Cincinnati on December 29th. They go on to face every AAC team twice, excluding SMU and Tulane, who they only play once.
Lastly, the squad will finish their regular season schedule in New Orleans against Tulane on March 6th.
