East Carolina will lift the lid on its sixth season in the American Athletic Conference on New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, with a road trip to Wichita State, as the league unveiled its 2020 men’s basketball composite schedule on Friday, complete with designated tip times and television listings.

The Pirates have 18 games on their league slate in addition to a 13-game non-conference slate, which was announced in August. After opening conference play on the road, ECU will return to home to play three in a row inside Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum, welcoming USF (Jan. 7), SMU (Jan. 11) and Tulsa (Jan. 15).

Following a road trip to reigning American champion Cincinnati on Jan. 19 and a return visit to SMU three days later, ECU opens a two-game homestand by hosting Tulane (Jan. 25) before closing out the first month of the new decade versus 2019 regular season winner Houston on Jan. 29 in its lone meeting of the season against Cougars.

ECU tips off February by playing three of its first four games on the road, beginning with a trip to Philadelphia to take on Temple on Feb. 1, followed by visits to Tulane (Feb. 8) and Tulsa (Feb. 12), with a home date against UCF (Feb. 6) sandwiched between.

The Pirates will alternate home and away contests for its final six games of the regular season, hosting Cincinnati (Feb. 16), Temple (Feb. 23) and Connecticut (Feb. 29) with road games at Memphis (Feb. 19), USF (Feb. 26) and UCF (March 9).

Fifteen of ECU’s 18 conference games will be televised or streamed by the family on ESPN networks, with its home game versus Cincinnati and away contests at Temple and Memphis broadcast by CBS Sports Network. Television and streaming broadcasts for all non-conference home games will be announced at later date.

The 2020 American Basketball Championship will be held March 12-15 in Fort Worth, Texas.

ECU season ticket orders are being accepted, and prices remain unchanged from last season.

ECU’s three non-conference weeknight home games against VMI (Nov. 5), Coppin State (Dec. 3) and Maryland – Eastern Shore (Dec. 17) will tip-off at 7 p.m., while its weekend home dates against Liberty (Nov. 16), Campbell (Dec. 14), Charlotte (Dec. 22) and Eastern Kentucky (Dec. 28) will each begin at 4 p.m.

Television and streaming broadcasts for all non-conference home games will be announced at later date.

Season ticket orders are now being accepted for the 2019-20 East Carolina men's basketball campaign. Prices remain unchanged from last season, with complete season ticket packages starting as low as $125 for economy plans and Pirate Club Young Grad program members. Pirate Club priority seating is available for $250. ECU employees are also able to purchase season tickets in the aforementioned sections for a discounted rate of $205.
