The North Texas men’s basketball team released its non-conference schedule for the 2017-18 season Tuesday afternoon, and first-year head coach Grant McCasland wasted no time in getting a few big name opponents on the schedule.

In a press release, the Mean Green announced they will take on Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma and Georgetown this season. North Texas doubled its matchups against Power Five programs, as the Mean Green faced just two major conference foes – Texas Tech and Rutgers – last year.

“We are excited about our non-conference schedule and the challenges it presents our team,” McCasland said in the press release. “The schedule will prepare us for Conference USA play and we can’t wait for the season opener on Nov. 10 at the Super Pit.”

McCasland and the Mean Green will open the year against Eureka College, a Division III school, on Nov. 10 at the Super Pit. According to the press release, North Texas will play in 13 non-conference games including the Ramblin’ Wreck Showcase hosted by Georgia Tech.

The Mean Green open Conference USA play Dec. 28 on the road against the University of Texas at El Paso.
