The Auburn men's basketball team plays its season opener at Tulane Friday at 8 pm Central in New Orleans. The Green Wave returns four starters from last year's team that finished 17-13 (9-7 C-USA). It is the earliest regular season game in school history, edging last year's Nov. 10 season opener. The Tigers, which are 71-30 in season openers, have won nine-straight season openers and 25 of their last 29. It is the first time Auburn has opened the season on the road since the 2004-05 season, an 80-78 upset of Temple in Philadelphia. The game is not televised but can be heard on the Auburn ISP Sports Network beginning at 7:30 pm Central and also on Sirius Satellite Radio on Ch. 107.
