Tulane will be back in New Orleans for basketball season.
The Tulane men will play 10 games, including the entire Conference USA home schedule, on campus at Fogelman Arena, located in the center of the school's New Orleans campus. The Green Wave's first home game in New Orleans is scheduled for Dec. 27 against Richmond.
