The College of William and Mary men’s basketball team announced its 2008-2009 season schedule today.
It includes 15 home games and 14 away games. The Tribe tips-off its season at Penn State Nov. 14 – its only match-up with a major conference team. The College will also make stops at Ohio University and Loyola Chicago.
The first home game of the season Nov. 19 features only the second time in Tribe basketball history that the College will face Norfolk State. The College also squares off with Navy, Radford, D-III Haverford and Harvard at Kaplan Arena.
The Tribe’s CAA schedule is front-loaded with games against VCU, Northeastern, ODU and UNCW to open the conference ledger. A three-game CAA road trip in mid-January should also test the College.
The Tribe wraps up its season at home against Drexel in what promises to be the College’s most winnable senior day game in recent memory.
Here’s the full schedule.
