MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University Director of Athletics Oliver Luck and the Big 12 Conference have announced the 2014-15 men’s basketball schedule.
The Mountaineers will play 15 regular season games at home, with every Big 12 team visiting Morgantown. In addition to conference play, LSU (SEC/Big 12 Challenge), Virginia Tech, Monmouth, Lafayette, College of Charleston and Wofford will visit Morgantown in non-conference action.
WVU will play three games in San Juan, Puerto Rico, at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The Mountaineers will open the tournament against George Mason before facing either New Mexico or Boston College a day later. On the final day, WVU will face either UConn, Dayton, Texas A&M or College of Charleston.
The Mountaineers will return to Madison Square Garden to participate in the Gotham Classic against NC State on Dec. 20. WVU will play two more neutral site games in Charleston against Marshall and VMI. West Virginia will play a road game at Northern Kentucky on Dec. 7.
Even though the television schedule is incomplete and additional games are expected to be televised nationally, the Mountaineers are already slated for 22 regular season games on national television, including all 18 Big 12 Conference games.
“Once again, this year’s schedule for coach Huggins and his team is very competitive from start to finish,” said Luck. “I’m pleased that we already have 22 games slated for national television, and I’m delighted that we will have 17 regular season games in our state. We all know how exciting Big 12 basketball is, and the trip to Puerto Rico against quality competition and getting back to Madison Square Garden to face NC State as well as hosting Virginia Tech and LSU certainly highlight the non-conference schedule.”
West Virginia will open the regular season Nov. 14 at home against Monmouth and will open Big 12 action at TCU on Jan. 3. WVU will play its first Big 12 home game against Iowa State on Jan. 10 and will conclude the Big 12 schedule against Oklahoma State at home on March 7.
West Virginia will play one exhibition game against Shepherd on Nov. 9.
“This is another competitive schedule for our guys and also one where our great fans will enjoy seeing our guys at home and on the road with our following of Mountaineer fans,” said coach Bob Huggins. “The non-conference schedule presents some interesting matchups for our team and for our fans, and every Big 12 game is a grind every time you take the floor. The Big 12 Conference has done a wonderful job in scheduling with only three weekday conference games while school is in session so our guys won’t miss as much class, in addition to the two-game trip to start conference play before we start the spring semester.”
The rest of the game times and complete television schedule will be announced at a later date. All dates and times are subject to change for television.
