Virginia Basketball gets some 2019 schedule hints

The Hoos head to the Mohegan Sun and the 2019-20 season could open ACC foe?

Looks like we have a couple clues about the Virginia Basketball schedule next season. First of all, it appears that the ACC has some new plans to kick off the ACC Network with a bang. According to CBS’s Jon Rothstein, the ACC is looking at opening the 2019-20 season with conference games.

The 2019-20 season is the first time that the ACC will be playing 20 conference games, up from its current 18. Sadly, we’ll never return to the days of a true round robin in conference, but this move is an interesting ones.

This tweet was met with a lot of anger, and it’s tough to ask squads to open with such important games with minimal time to prepare. That said, playing Duke or Georgia Tech is infinitely more interesting than a Liberty or Norfolk State (no offense).

There was also some early season tournament news as the Cavaliers are rumored to be playing in the 2019 Hall of Fame Classic which takes place at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.

The Hoos are playing in the Bad Boy Mowers Battle 4 Atlantis this season and will face Middle Tennessee in the first round in the Bahamas. Virginia’s season tips off on November 6 with Towson coming to Charlottesville.
