Virginia basketball releases 2014-15 schedule

If the Virginia men’s basketball team hopes to win a second straight ACC regular season title, the Cavaliers will have to navigate through a few treacherous stretches unlike any they encountered a year ago. The ACC released its full schedule for the 2014-15 campaign Wednesday afternoon, and there were otherwise few surprises. Virginia will open the season with its first visit to James Madison since 1982 on Nov. 14, one of several nonconference tests . Over the course of 38 days leading into ACC play, the Cavaliers will play George Washington at John Paul Jones Arena; travel to Brooklyn for the Barclays Classic to face La Salle and either Vanderbilt or Rutgers over the Thanksgiving holiday; travel for consecutive games at Maryland on Dec. 3 (as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge) and at VCU on Dec. 6; and then play back-to-back home games against Harvard and Davidson. But it’s the conference schedule that looks more daunting with the addition of Louisville to the ACC. Though Virginia will face Duke, North Carolina and Syracuse just once, it will have to deal with much of the ACC’s upper echelon in short bursts. Starting Jan. 31, the Cavaliers will play Duke at home, North Carolina on the road and Louisville at home in a span of seven days. They then close the regular season with back-to-back road games vs. Louisville and Syracuse. In addition to the Cardinals, Virginia will play Virginia Tech, North Carolina State and Wake Forest home and away this year. Game times and broadcast information are to be determined unless otherwise noted.
