Conference USA Tournament 2011: First Round Today

The Conference USA Tournament kicks off today with the lower-seeded teams fighting to reach the quarterfinals, where the top four seeds wait for their first opponents tomorrow. The University of Houston takes on the Marshall Thundering Herd at 6:30 PM CT, and Rice takes on the SMU Mustangs in the nightcap at 9 PM CT.

Here’s the full rundown of today’s schedule (all times CT):

#8 East Carolina Pirates vs. #9 Central Florida Knights — 12 PM
#5 Southern Miss. Golden Eagles vs. #12 Tulane Green Wave — 2:30 PM
#11 Houston Cougars vs. #6 Marshall Thundering Herd — 6:30 PM
#10 Rice Owls vs. #7 SMU Mustangs — 9:00 PM

Unfortunately, none of the first round games will be broadcast on television. You’ll have to follow along on the internet, watch GameTrackers, and act like you’re watching the game. Or, alternately, you could just road trip to El Paso. Plenty of seats available, I’d guess.
