Non-Con Hoops Schedule Announced

West Virginia University Director of Athletics Ed Pastilong has announced the 2009-10 men's basketball non-conference schedule.

The Mountaineers will play 12 non-conference contests, including home games against Ohio State, Ole Miss, Duquesne, Coppin State and Loyola College.

West Virginia will open the regular season Nov. 15 at home against Loyola. The Mountaineers will play two home exhibition games against the University of Charleston and Mountain State. Those dates will be announced in September.

WVU will play road games at Purdue and Cleveland State. The Mountaineers will play two games in Charleston – The Citadel and Marshall.

West Virginia will travel to Anaheim, Calif., in late November for three games in the 76 Classic, beginning with Long Beach State on Thanksgiving. The Mountaineers will face Texas A&M or Clemson on the second day and wrap up the tournament against either Minnesota, Butler, UCLA or Portland.

"This is probably as good a non-conference schedule as we've played in a long time," said coach Bob Huggins. "We believe this is a non-conference schedule that our fans will enjoy in person and on television."
