NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Conference Tournament-West Virginia vs TCU Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

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.

The 2017-2018 Big 12 conference schedule for WVU men’s basketball

The 2018 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship will be held March 7-10, at the Sprint Center, in Kansas City, Mo.

WVU kicks off the 2017-2018 season on Friday, November 10, at 6 p.m., against Texas A&M in the Armed Forces Classic in Ramstein-Miesenbach, Germany, on ESPN. The Mountaineers are slated to play in the AdvoCare Invitational during Thanksgiving in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

The Mountaineers will face to rivals in the non-conference schedule. WVU hosts Virginia on Tuesday, December 5 and will travel to Pittsburgh to face the Panthers on Saturday, December 9. Perhaps the biggest non-conference game will be in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge, as the Mountaineers host Kentucky on Saturday, January 27. Those times are TBA.
