On Friday, West Virginia University Athletics Director Shane Lyons released the nonconference matchups, completing the 2020-21 schedule.
“Our nonconference schedule is going to be very good,” head coach Mike Carey said in a release by the university. “We’re going to play a number of Power 5 schools in these tournaments when they come out. We’re looking forward to facing some tough competition in the nonconference, which will help prepare us for the Big 12 season.”
The Mountaineers host West Virginia Tech in an exhibition game Thursday, Oct. 28, at the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown before opening the season at home against Saint Francis (PA) - the first of three games in six days followed with Kennesaw State on Friday, Nov. 19 and Radford on Sunday, Nov. 21.
