Expectations for the upcoming season are high for Tony Bennett and the Virginia men's basketball team and Thursday's schedule release shows the Cavaliers on the national radar.
UVa will play 16 games on national TV, with games against Duke (Jan. 13), North Carolina (Jan. 20) and Maryland (Feb. 10) featured on ESPN’s ACC Big Monday.
The Cavaliers’ last regular-season game at Maryland (March 9) will be televised on CBS. Virginia will play an additional 12 games on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.
The Wahoos will face each of the 14 ACC opponents, including newcomers Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Syracuse, during its 18-game league schedule.
They'll play four schools -- Florida State, Maryland, Notre Dame and Virginia Tech -- as part of home-and-away series; five schools -- Boston College, Miami, North Carolina, Syracuse and Wake Forest -- exclusively at home; and five schools -- Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, NC State and Pittsburgh -- only on the road.
The Cavs non-conference home portion of the schedule is highlighted by visits from Wisconsin, VCU, James Madison and Northern Iowa. Their road schedule features stops in Tennessee and Charlotte, N.C. to face Davidson. In addition, Virginia plays SMU and either Texas A&M or Missouri State at the Corpus Christi Challenge in Texas.
Virginia returns its top five scorers, including All-ACC performers Joe Harris and Akil Mitchell from last year’s team that posted a 23-12 record.
