ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - CBS College Sports will televise three UCF men's basketball contests this season to a national audience, including a pair of games from the UCF Arena. All three of the televised games are Conference USA matchups.

CBS College Sports will air the Knights' home contest with Marshall on Jan. 13. Tip-off for the game is set for 8 p.m. Three days later on Jan. 16, UCF's game at Tulsa will be shown on the network, starting at 8 p.m. Eastern.

When head coach Kirk Speraw's squad hosts Tulane at 4 p.m. on Feb. 13, CBS College Sports will also air the game.

Two UCF contests - Feb. 10 at Memphis and Feb. 16 versus Houston - will be televised live regionally on CSS. UCF's local television schedule will be announced at a later date.

All of the Knights' Saturday home games that are not televised will begin at 5 p.m.

The Knights open the campaign on Nov. 13, hosting Massachusetts. The squad is slated to play 15 games at the UCF Arena this year. Season tickets, which begin at just $79, are currently available by calling (407) UCF-1000 or by visiting UCFAthletics.com. Season tickets include complimentary passes to see UCF play three games in November at the Glenn Wilkes Classic in Daytona Beach.

UCF's young squad this season will be led by sophomore guard A.J. Rompza (Chicago, Ill.), a C-USA All-Freshman Team pick a year ago. Speraw's team also includes some of the most-highly touted freshmen in program history in forward Keith Clanton (Orlando, Fla.) and guard Marcus Jordan (Highland Park, Ill.).
