Tulane basketball adds Wilkins to staff

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Tulane men's basketball head coach Ed Conroy has named Anthony Wilkins as director of basketball operations. Wilkins joins Tulane after serving one season as a member of the staff at Kent State, his alma mater.

Conroy said Friday that Wilkins has experience playing on both the professional and collegiate levels.

Wilkins spent time overseas in Sweden, Ukraine, Mexico and South Korea. He also played two seasons in the NBA Development League and was an NBA Vet Camp invitee of the Atlanta Hawks in 2005.

Wilkins completes Conroy's staff that includes Jeff Strohm, Andy Fox and Shammond Williams. The Green Wave begins practice Sept. 27 and opens the 2013-14 season on Nov. 3 with an exhibition game against Loyola-New Orleans.
