Injuries

In July, both LJ Rose and Mikhail McLean had foot surgery. Each is expected to need three or four months to recover.[7]

Schedule and results

On May 28, the American Athletic Conference announced the format and opponents for the 2014–15 conference schedule. Due to an odd number of conference members and maintaining an 18-game schedule, each team played 8 opponents twice (home and away) and two opponents once (1 home, 1 away). UConn (home) and Temple (away) were the two teams the Cougars played just once this season.[8] On July 18, the team announced participation in the championship pairings of the 2014 Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic, alongside Boise State, Texas Tech, and Loyola–Chicago at the Orleans Arena. Two on-campus games preceded the Las Vegas-hosted games,[9] with one at South Carolina State.[10] In August, ESPN reported that Houston's visit to Harvard for a game on November 25.[11] The remainder of the Cougars' schedule was announced by the American Athletic Conference on August 28.[12]
