Preliminary WVU Basketball Schedule Released

And good news, it doesn't involve playing JMU anywhere!

While Big East dates have yet to be announced, the Mountaineers will welcome Cincinnati, DePaul, Georgetown, Louisville, Marquette, Notre Dame, Pitt, Rutgers and Villanova to the WVU Coliseum.  The Mountaineers will go on the road to face Connecticut, Notre Dame, Pitt, Providence, Rutgers, St. John’s, Seton Hall, USF and Syracuse.  The traditional matchup with Pitt, a decent rivalry with Notre Dame, and the nothingness of Rutgers will serve as the home-and-away games this season.

In non-conference play, marquee games against Kansas State in Wichita, Mississippi State in the Big East/SEC challenge (good tickets still available), and the Las Vegas Classic over Thanksgiving headline the slate.  Also, the Mountaineers will make their customary two trips to Charleston, taking on Marshall in the Capital Classic as well as Morehead State.  Other non-conference foes include Akron, Alcorn State, Kent State, Miami and Oral Roberts.

Overall, it's not the most difficult of schedules, which should be welcomed considering the expected quality of next year' squad.  It's a rebuilding year -- one that still shows promise, though -- and a less-than-brutal schedule (see: the last two years) should be helpful.
