Tulane will welcome the University of Washington to Devlin Fieldhouse for a non-conference men's basketball game on Dec. 17.

While Tulane has not yet announced its schedule, Washington announced the date last week.

The game will serve as a homecoming for Huskies sophomore Jernard Jarreau, who prepped at McDonogh 35. Jarreau started seven games and averaged 3.2 points per game last season and figures to play a larger role this year.

Washington was 18-16 last season – its fewest wins since 2007-08 – and reached the NIT for the second consecutive year after three straight trips to the NCAA Tournament. Lorenzo Romar is beginning his 12th year as the Huskies' head coach.
