The Memphis Hustle have announced the regular season schedule for its 2019-20 season in the NBA G League, with the team opening up at the Landers Center on Friday, Nov. 8 against the Texas Legends (Dallas) at 7 p.m. The team will then travel for a return match with the Legends the following evening.
Led by new head coach Jason March, the team will play 24 home games at Landers Center, 24 road games and two games at the NBA G League Showcase 2019, with location, dates and opponents to be announced at a later date.
The Hustle continue competition in the Western Conference’s Midwest Division alongside the Iowa Wolves, Oklahoma City Blue and Sioux Falls Skyforce. Of its 48 regular season games, the team will play 43 games against Western Conference foes and five games total against Eastern Conference opponents, down from eight in each of the previous two seasons.
In interconference play, the Hustle will make its first ever trip to visit the Greensboro Swarm (Charlotte) and expansion franchise College Park Skyhawks (Atlanta) while hosting the Maine Red Claws (Boston) and Raptors 905 (Toronto) for the first time.
Notably, the team will host its third annual Financial Literacy Education Day Game, presented by Renasant Bank, on Thursday, Feb. 6 at 10:30 a.m. against Midwest Division rival Oklahoma City Blue (Thunder).
