WVU Basketball: Non-conference schedule is 13 games strong
The Mountaineer men's basketball program is coming off a "Sweet" season.
As in a Sweet 16 season. WVU's campaign ended with a loss to eventual national runner-up Gonzaga.
The upcoming season will of course feature the rugged slate of Big 12 games.
But the non-conference portion of the schedule is quite challenging as well.
West Virginia opens play November 10 in Germany (which will serve as the first college basketball game in the 2017-18 season) against Texas A&M.
The Mountaineers home slate will include games with Virginia and Kentucky. UVA visits for the first time since 1985 while the Wildcats invade Morgantown for the first time since 1970.
A road game has WVU resuming the basketball version of the Backyard Brawl with a trip to Pittsburgh.
