Virginia Tech’s 2016-17 basketball schedule was released on Monday afternoon.  Tech will open the season on Friday, November 11 at home against Maine.  It will be the first of 17 home games this season.

Tech will play a tough stretch of games from November 24 through November 30.  They’ll take on New Mexico in the opening round of the Wooden Legacy in Fullerton, CA.  Then they’ll play Texas A&M or Cal State-Northridge the next day, and they’ll have another game two days later on November 27.  Before flying home to Blacksburg, they’ll stop off in Ann Arbor to take on the Michigan Wolverines.

Tech’s premier non-conference home matchup will come against Ole Miss on Sunday, December 11.  That game will be televised at noon by ESPNU.

ACC play will begin when the Hokies host Duke on Saturday, December 31 on ESPN2 at noon (naturally when the students are on Winter Break).  The ACC Tournament starts on Tuesday, March 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

We’ll have an in-depth analysis of the schedule later this week, and we’ll also update the schedule on TSL.  Until then, check out this link for the complete schedule.

  1. Duke while the students are on break is one thing but New Years Eve Day! That is a double slap in the face. I hope Buzz’s men rise up and smack them in the mouth!

  2. Considering last year’s record and the returning players there too many games against cupcakes. I feel for the season ticket holders. It’s kind of like the NFL where the fans have to pay big bucks for exhibition games. Well it’s your money. And of course the ACC is going to kowtow to the Duke coach. That’s a given.

    1. With due respect, take a look at other teams schedules early on. We don’t have any more cupcakes than the big boys!

      1. You may be right ( probably ) but it doesn’t make it better for the paying customers. It’s kind of like adding a surcharge for the other games and who wants have to pay for this. Just a thought.

  3. Is Babcock not strong enough, or entrenched enough, to stand up to the conference schedule makers about having the biggest home games of the season over winter break EVERY year? Thsi is getting absurd.

      1. This makes me sick! I’m so tired of criminals getting away with things like this – whether it’s in politics, sports or whatever. It got ridiculous a long time ago!
