Green Wave Fans:

I hope everyone has made it safely through this Mardi Gras. We've been keeping busy as we are now in full swing for many of our sports.

Our men's and women's basketball seasons are heading down the stretch with some big games still ahead. If this year is any indication of what's to come, then there is so much to look forward to. The women host Memphis in our annual "Think Pink"”" game on Saturday and we are looking to pack the house on Monday night when the women host defending NCAA National Champions, the Connecticut Huskies, Monday night at 7pm.

Also, tonight is "Opening Night" for Tulane Baseball. We've opened the season 3-1 after a three-game series at Pepperdine, and secured another victory at Southeastern on Wednesday evening. Coach Pierce and his staff have worked extremely hard this offseason, and I know we are all excited for him to begin this new era of Tulane Baseball against San Francisco at 6:30 p.m. If you can't make it tonight, there are also games at 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.

As some of you may know, the 2015 football schedule has been released. We have an exciting home schedule and Homecoming will take place on Saturday, November 7 when we host the University of Connecticut. I'm happy to say that all season ticket pricing will stay the same for this year. I hope that you, your friends and family will renew, or purchase tickets for the upcoming season.

On another note, we have lost two wonderful Greenies that I want to speak about, Buddy Keating and Rob Tessaro. Buddy was a life-long Green Wave fan, supporter, and member of the Green Backers, who cared deeply for Tulane Athletics. Less than a week before passing Buddy told me to be sure and "hold his baseball tickets." Rob was a 1998 alumnus, former men's basketball team manager, and past president of the New York City Tulane Alumni Chapter. Over the past 15 years I have worked closely with Rob to create interest and events in New York for Tulane University and Tulane Athletics. It was his fun-filled and spirited passion for his family (wife Stacey and daughter Zoe) and friends, along with his love for everything Tulane, that will live on and be remembered. Buddy and Rob, a "Helluva Hullabaloo" to you! I will miss you both and remember you always.

Brenda and I will be spending a lot of time between Devlin Fieldhouse and Greer Field at Turchin Stadium over the next few days and hope to see you there.

As Always, Roll Wave!
