Another Piece of the Puzzle

The 2004-05 men's basketball schedule took another step toward completion as West Virginia's opponents in the first round of the Guardians Classic became known.

West Virginia will host Louisiana Monroe, Fairleigh Dickinson and Wofford during first round play at the WVU Coliseum.

WVU will face Louisiana Monroe on Nov. 12, then play the winner of the Fairleigh Dickinson-Wofford matchup on Nov. 13.

Along with West Virginia, Texas, Kentucky and Iowa will also host first round sites, with the winner at each site advancing to the semifinals in Kansas City, Mo., on November 21. The finals will be played the next night. Shoule West Virginia advance, it would face the winner of the Austin (Tx.) regional in the semifinals.

West Virginia still has openings for two additional games on the 2005-06 regular season schedule. Attempts to work out dates with a number of schools have met scheduling conflicts, but efforts are still underway to add the final two games.
