Dec. 26, 2010
NEW ORLEANS - Due to travel issues forced by inclement weather, the Green Wave women's basketball program has adjusted the original schedule of the 2010 Tulane/DoubleTree Classic. Originally slated to be held from Dec. 28-29, the two-day, four-game tournament will now take place from Dec. 29-30 in Fogelman Arena.
The four participating teams remain the same as do the original head-to-head matchups. But instead of Tulane taking on Nicholls State on Tuesday at 6 p.m., the teams will open the DoubleTree Classic on Wednesday at 3 p.m. in Fogelman Arena.
Following the Green Wave/Colonel matchup, Charlotte will take on Old Dominion on Wednesday at 5 p.m. The two winning teams from Dec. 29's contests will square off in the Tulane/DoubleTree Classic championship game on Thursday at 3 p.m. while the consolation contest will be held at 1 p.m.
The 2010-11 season marks the 15th season of the Tulane/DoubleTree Classic and the Green Wave are 25-3 in the annual event. Tulane has gone on to win the tournament 11 times, earning team titles from 1996-2002 and again in 2004, 2006, and from 2008-09.
Last season, the Green Wave opened the DoubleTree Classic with an 82-59 win over Long Island on Dec. 28, 2009, before rolling past Texas Tech in the championship game, 67-49. Then-junior Danielle Nunn was named Most Valuable Player while teammate Tiffany Aidoo earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team.
Thursday's Tulane/DoubleTree Classic contests are the first two of three games held in Fogelman Arena on Dec. 30 as the Green Wave's men's team will take on Lamar at 7 p.m.
Single-game tickets to future home contests are available through the Tulane Athletics Ticket Office. Floor seats are $15 while reserve and general-admission tickets can be purchased for $10 and $5, respectively. In addition, groups of 10 or more fans can purchase reserved tickets for $8 each and general admission seats go for $3 each.
The Tulane Athletics Ticket Office is located on the first floor of the James W. Wilson, Jr. Center, and tickets can be purchased in person, over the phone at (504) 861-WAVE (9283) via the Internet at www.TulaneGreenWave.com.
