Published On: Aug 22 2013 04:33:32 PM EDT

The Virginia Tech men’s basketball team released its 2013-14 schedule on Thursday.

The schedule is highlighted by an appearance in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic in Brooklyn, games against the ACC’s three new teams, and a matchup against VCU in Richmond.

“I am excited about this 2013-14 season,” coach James Johnson wrote in a news release. “We have a tough non-conference schedule that will test this inexperienced team and get us ready for the rigors of the best conference in the country, the ACC. We will have early season games with West Virginia, Michigan State and an always tough, always strong VCU team at the Richmond Coliseum, along with some very good non-conference teams coming into Blacksburg.”

The Hokies open the season Nov. 9 by hosting USC Upstate. The Hokies host West Virginia on Nov. 12. Virginia Tech also will renew its series with New River Valley rival Radford on Nov. 29 in Blacksburg.
