Coming off two-straight runs to the Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship game, the West Virginia Men’s Basketball team released its conference schedule for the 2017-2018 season. Bob Huggins and company will hope to leverage what promises to be an improved Big 12 conference to the fourth-straight NCAA tournament appearance.
The Mountaineers will start Big 12 play with a road trip at the end of winter break, as has become a tradition. WVU will travel to Oklahoma State on Wednesday, December 26, in the first conference matchup.
WVU fans should circle Monday, January 15 as the Big Monday meeting with Kansas, tip off at 9 p.m. on ESPN. The Mountaineers will meet with Iowa State, who knocked them off in the 2017 Big 12 title game, on Wednesday, January 31, at 7 p.m. on ESPNU.
The final home Big 12 game will be on Saturday, February 24, when Texas Tech comes to town for a 6 p.m. game on ESPN or ESPNU.
