Game days releasedAs the schedule was released for the 2007-2008 men’s basketball season, non-conference games against three Big 12 opponents highlight this year’s string of games.

Perhaps the year’s most notable game comes Jan. 2 when the team travels to Austin for a 7 p.m. game with the University of Texas Longhorns.

The team will also have back-to-back meetings with the Texas Tech University Red Raiders and the Oklahoma University Sooners.

The Horned Frogs will travel to Lubbock on Nov. 28 to play Texas Tech and gets its shot at Oklahoma four days later at home.

Of the 29 games on this season’s schedule, 17 of them are at home – a good sign for a team that won 10 of its 13 games at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum last season.

Aside from the more notable non-conference matchups, head coach Neil Dougherty and Co. have SMU, the University of Texas at Arlington and a home-and-away series with Rice University scheduled for this season.

This season’s Nov. 10 opener has the Horned Frogs hosting Angelo State at home. The start of the conference docket will be Jan. 5, when the Horned Frogs travel to San Diego to take on San Diego State.

The Horned Frogs look to improve on last season’s 13-17 mark.

Runners begin season

In a change of pace from last season’s Baylor Invitational, the cross country team will not be running in a relay meet, but rather in two individual races.

The women will begin the evening with a 4K race at 6:30 p.m. while the men step up to the starting line at 7 p.m.

Leading the men’s team are sophomore Festus Kigen and senior Matt Manly.

Steven Solazzo rounds out the last of the returning runners for the men who are alongside five new recruits.

The women’s team is anchored by sophomores Dani Selner and Carlene Mayfield.

A healthy Halie Bullin will be the senior leading the women’s squad in the 2007 season.
