Head coach James Dickey
Nov. 13, 2012
HOUSTON - As the University of Houston men's basketball team continues its 2012-13 season, head coach James Dickey announced a pair of adjustments to the team's schedule on Tuesday.
TEXAS A&M DEC. 1
The Cougars' showdown against Southeastern Conference member Texas A&M will tip off at 5:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1. The game was originally scheduled for 3 p.m., but was recently moved to better accommodate FOX Sports Net's television broadcast.
With 83 meetings in the all-time series, the Cougars have played no team more in their storied history than Texas A&M. However, it will be the first time since Dec. 27, 2003, that the Aggies have visited Hofheinz Pavilion.
The Cougars own a 53-30 lead in the all-time series against Texas A&M, including a 36-8 mark in Houston. Houston has won each of its three home games against Texas A&M and not lost in its home facility against the Aggies since Jan. 19, 1994.
The two teams met at least once every year from the 1974-75 season through the 1995-96 campaign as Southwest Conference rivals.
TEXAS A&M-CORPUS CHRISTI Nov. 25
The Cougars' game at Texas A&M-Corpus Christ will be shown live on Comcast SportsNet Houston. That game will tip off at 2 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 25. It will be the eighth televised game for the Cougars during the 2012-13 season.
