2015-16 Virginia Men’s Basketball Schedule Sept. 2, 2015
The Atlantic Coast Conference released the 2015-16 men’s basketball schedules for its member institutions on Wednesday (Sept. 2).
Virginia will play 30 regular-season games, including 15 contests at John Paul Jones Arena. The Cavaliers’ schedule is highlighted by nine games against 2015 NCAA Tournament teams: home games against North Carolina, Louisville, Villanova, Notre Dame and NC State, and road contests at Duke, Louisville and Ohio State. Virginia will also play West Virginia in the Jimmy V Men’s Basketball Classic.
Virginia will face each of the 14 conference opponents during its 18-game league schedule. The Cavaliers will play four schools home-and-away (Clemson, Louisville, Miami and Virginia Tech), five schools only at home (Boston College, North Carolina, NC State, Notre Dame and Syracuse) and five schools only on the road (Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Pitt and Wake Forest).
Virginia’s non-conference home schedule is highlighted by contests against Villanova (Dec. 19) and California (Dec. 22). The Cavaliers will play at Ohio State (Dec. 1) during the 17th annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge and West Virginia (Dec. 8) as part of the Jimmy V Men’s Basketball Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York. In addition, UVa travels to the Charleston Classic in November to play three games.
Virginia’s games against NC State (Feb. 15) and Miami (Feb. 22) will be featured on ESPN’s ACC Big Monday. UVa’s game at Louisville (Jan. 30) will be televised on CBS and the Cavaliers will play an additional 19 games on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.
Virginia returns three starters – All-ACC performers Malcolm Brogdon (Atlanta, Ga.) and Anthony Gill (High Point, N.C.) and guard London Perrantes (Los Angeles) – from last year’s team that captured the ACC regular-season title and recorded 30 wins for the second consecutive season. ACC Sixth Man of the Year Mike Tobey (Monroe, N.Y.), Marial Shayok (Ottawa, Ontario), Isaiah Wilkins (Lilburn, Ga.), Evan Nolte (Milton, Ga.) and Devon Hall (Virginia Beach, Va.) also return to the Cavaliers, who led the nation in scoring defense for the second straight season and advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament under seventh-year head coach Tony Bennett.
Virginia men’s basketball season tickets are sold out for 2015-16 season. A limited number of single-game tickets will be available for the home games against Lehigh (Nov. 25) and Oakland (Dec. 30) beginning Friday, Oct. 23. Additional single-game ticket availability will be announced at a later date.
