The American Athletic Conference announced its 2017-2018 men’s and women’s basketball conference pairings on Thursday. Since adding Wichita State, teams will play seven of the 11 teams twice, and the other four once each.

The complete schedule for the 2017-2018 season will be announced at a later date.

Wichita State announced its move from the Missouri Valley to the AAC this spring.

According to information posted on the AAC’s website, Wichita State’s men’s basketball team will play USF of Tampa, Florida, and Tulane of New Orleans, Louisiana, at home only. Wichita State will travel to Greenville, North Carolina, to face East Carolina University and Memphis, Tennessee to face the University of Memphis.
