HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The Conference USA office released the league men’s basketball schedules for all of its members Wednesday afternoon.
The Thundering Herd will face Old Dominion, Charlotte, Middle Tennessee, UAB and Western Kentucky twice. The program will host UTSA, UTEP, Rice and North Texas while traveling to FIU, Florida Atlantic, Southern Miss and Louisiana Tech.
Marshall set 14 C-USA, school or Henderson Center records in coach Dan D’Antoni’s second season a year ago, including 86.0 points per game (T-3rd nationally) against a schedule that ranked in the top 100 of the RPI.
The Thundering Herd will also look to build on a season that saw the program rack up 12 league wins for the first time since 2000-01 as a member of the Mid-American Conference.
Marshall’s non-conference schedule will be released at a later date once it is finalized.
