Bearcat Basketball Conference Opponents Set For 2014-15 Season

Joe Murphy

Today the American Athletic Conference announced the matchups for the 2014-15 conference season.

Here is the release.

Home: UCF, UConn, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, USF, SMU, Temple, Tulane Away: UCF, UConn, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, SMU, Temple, Tulane, Tulsa

So the Bearcats will have home and homes with UCF, Connecticut, East Carolina, Houston, Temple, Tulane and presumptive conference favorite SMU. The two teams the Bearcats won't see twice are South Florida (embarking on the Orlando Antigua era) and Tulsa (starting over with Danny Manning moving on to Wake Forest).

The scheduling for the AAC is no where near as complicated as it once was for the Big East, but I still think they manged to get it right. Unlike in football each of the projected top four (Memphis, UC, Southern Methodist and UConn) will see each other twice during the 2014-15 season.

There will surely be complaints from some corners, like UCF who will not host UConn this season or ECU which will not host SMU. But for an attempt to balance the schedule of a ridiculously top heavy league its not all that bad.
