CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Atlantic Coast Conference released the 2017-18 men’s basketball schedules for its member institutions on Thursday (Sept. 7). Virginia will play 30 regular-season games, including 17 contests at John Paul Jones Arena.

The Cavaliers’ schedule is highlighted by home games against defending national champion North Carolina, Louisville, Wisconsin, Syracuse and Notre Dame, and road contests at Duke, Louisville, West Virginia, Syracuse and VCU. In addition, UVA will play four games as part of the NIT Season Tip-Off in November. Virginia will play a total of 15 games against 2017 NCAA Tournament teams.

ACC Schedule
Virginia will face each of the 14 conference opponents during its 18-game league schedule. The Cavaliers will play four schools home-and-away (Louisville, Georgia Tech, Syracuse and Virginia Tech), five schools only at home (Boston College, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State and Notre Dame) and five schools only on the road (Duke, Florida State, Miami, Pitt and Wake Forest).

Non-Conference Highlights
Virginia’s non-conference schedule is highlighted by its Big Ten/ACC Challenge contest against Wisconsin (Nov. 27) and a road match-up with Big 12 foe West Virginia (Dec. 5). The Cavaliers will travel to VCU (Nov. 17) and battle Vanderbilt (Nov. 23) and Seton Hall or Rhode Island (Nov. 24) at the NIT Season Tip-Off in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Virginia returns Isaiah Wilkins (Lilburn, Ga.) and Devon Hall (Virginia Beach, Va.) from last year’s team that recorded 23 wins and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth straight season for the first time since 1981-84. Kyle Guy (Indianapolis, Ind.), Ty Jerome (New Rochelle, N.Y.), Mamadi Diakite (Conakry, Guinea), De’Andre Hunter (Philadelphia, Pa.), Jay Huff (Durham, N.C.) and Jack Salt (Auckland, N.Z.) also return to the Cavaliers, who finished first nationally in scoring defense under ninth-year head coach Tony Bennett.
