Got some updates on this season’s out of conference basketball schedule that we have been tracking in recent months.
* The Tennessee Volunteers have released their non-conference basketball schedule for the upcoming season at includes a December 17th visit to PNC Arena to play the Wolfpack.
* In addition to this match-up against the SEC, the Wolfpack will face the Big XII’s West Virginia Mountaineers in Madison Square Garden on Saturday, December 20th (click here).
* State travels to the B1G’s Purdue Boilermakers on Decmeber 2nd for the ACC – Big 10 Challenge.
* It looks like State may have games against two American Athletic Conference foes this year with a home game vs Cincinnati (Dec 30th) and a tilt against Larry Brown’s SMU Mustangs who many people believe failed to make last season’s NCAA Tournament because of the Wolfpack’s bid.
* State will host Hofstra at PNC. That’s a solid mid-major addition.
* On the lower end of the schedule it looks like the Pack will host Louisiana Tech and Boise State (Nov 28th).
* South Florida’s date has now been released (Nov 23rd) but it seems we are still waiting to hear a date for our trip to Missouri in the 2014-2015 season.
We will keep you updated on more as it becomes available.
