While the Cavalier men's basketball team's schedule has yet to be released, a match up with Penn State will be on it when it is. Virginia will welcome the Nittany Lions to John Paul Jones Arena on November 30 for the ACC Big Ten Challenge.

Penn State is coming off a solid season that saw the Nittany Lions go 26-11 and win the NIT. This marks the first time these two squads will play since 1984-1985, and just the eighth time in history. Virginia has won five of the previous seven meetings with Penn State.

Virginia is coming off a 10-18 campaign in 2008-2009. That included a 66-56 loss to Minnesota in the ACC Big Ten Challenge. This marks the eleventh year of the annual event. Virginia vs. Penn State is the only game scheduled in the event for November 30.

Check back on, as we will have the complete men's basketball schedule as soon as it becomes available.
