Nov. 19, 2007
New Orleans - This Saturday's men's basketball rivalry game between Tulane and New Orleans at Fogelman Arena will be aired live by Cox Sports Television and will tip-off at 2 p.m. New Orleans Hornets announcer Bob Licht will handle the play-by-play duties, while Gil McGregor will provide color analysis.
With the Tulane football team kicking off its regular season finale at Conference USA foe East Carolina at Noon (CST), the Green Wave men's basketball broadcast will switch for one game only to WRBH 88.3 FM to avoid a conflict with the football game. Tulane women's basketball announcer Tim Grubbs will substitute for Todd Graffagnini, the regular "Voice of the Green Wave" for basketball, who will be at East Carolina with the TU football team.
The Tulane-UNO game will also feature a "Coat Drive" benefiting the Communities in Schools program. A ticket voucher for a select Tulane men's basketball game will be given to those who donate a coat.
The Green Wave and the Privateers both enter Saturday's game with undefeated records and both squads have each pulled off an upset this season. Tulane knocked off Southeastern Conference member Auburn at home in the season opener and brings a 3-0 record into the UNO game. The Privateers are 2-0 and are coming off a last second victory over North Carolina State on the road this past Sunday.
