By Josh Monsen

BUENA VISTA, Va. —­­­ Southern Virginia University's first-year head men's basketball coach Greg Winslow today announced the team's upcoming 2018-19 schedule.

"This year we are staying close to home with the exception of a trip to Philadelphia and a tournament in North Carolina," Winslow said. "We will face some solid competition this season, both inside and outside of our conference. The Capital Athletic Conference is always strong and will be an exciting challenge."

The Knights' season will start with a three-game road trip starting at McDaniel College Nov. 12, then the team will head to Philadelphia for a pair of games. 

The home opener will tip-off Nov. 20 against Washington & Lee at 7 p.m. in the Knight Sport Arena. The Knights will then participate in a pair of tournaments before they begin Capital Athletic Conference play visiting conference-foe Penn State-Harrisburg Jan. 2.

Following the short two-game stint on the road, the Knights' will start a three-game home stand for conference play that will begin against Frostburg State Jan. 9.

The final home game of the season will also be the last regular season game; they will host St. Mary's College of Maryland Feb. 16. 

All eight teams in the CAC will participate in the post-season play. The first round will begin Feb. 19.
