NCAA Basketball: Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament - Davidson vs Rhode Island Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia men’s basketball will play the Davidson Wildcats in Charlottesville as part of its 2017-18 schedule, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein.

Virginia leads the all-time series 12-4, after an 83-72 win in December of 2014.

The non-conference schedule has not yet been finalized and announced, but the ACC determined the conference schedule for 2018 almost a year and a half ago. UVA’s looks like this:

  • Home: Boston College, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, and Notre Dame
  • Away: Duke, Florida State, Miami, Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest
  • Home and away: Georgia Tech, Louisville, Syracuse, and Virginia Tech

The Wildcats finished last year with a 17-15 record, going just 8-10 in the Atlantic 10. They played two ACC opponents as part of their out of conference schedule, losing to both Clemson (95-78) and North Carolina (83-74). They lost in the A10 semifinals to eventual champions Rhode Island.
