Thirteen Home Games Headline 2017-18 Men’s Basketball Schedule

By Nick Porter 

BUENA VISTA, Va. — Southern Virginia University head men's basketball coach Tony Caputo today announced the team's upcoming 2017-18 schedule.

"I am looking forward to playing a lot more games at home this season in front of our student body," Caputo said. "The Capital Athletic Conference is always a challenge and we have some tough stretches. We are looking to take the next step, and winning some of the close games we fell short in last year."

The season will tip-off at home on November 15 as the Knights host Shenandoah. A five-game road trip will ensue, with Capital Athletic Conference play beginning earlier than ever before, on November 25. 

Southern Virginia will play five home games in December, playing their first home conference game on December 2 against Wesley. After hosting CAC opponent Mary Washington on December 6, the Knights will host their final three non-league foes on the 9th, 16th and 30th.

The final home game of the season will be held on February 14 against Frostburg State, with the final regular season game on the following Saturday, February 17 at Salisbury.
