West Virginia coach Bob Huggins argues a foul call during Saturday’s 73-57 loss to No. 14 Oklahoma State last season.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia’s men’s basketball team is scheduled to appear on national television 13 times during the upcoming season, according to the 2013-14 schedule released Thursday by the school.

And thanks to the Big 12 schedulers, WVU will save a cross-country flight by playing a two-game Saturday-Monday swing through TCU and Texas Tech on Jan. 4 and Jan. 6. Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins has lobbied for such a two-for-one trip, which will take place before WVU’s spring semester begins.

The Mountaineers will play 16 regular-season games at home, including nine games against Big 12 teams in the round-robin format. The nonconference opponents include Gonzaga, Purdue and Duquesne—all three of whom defeated WVU last season.

Georgia Southern and Presbyterian also will come to the WVU Coliseum, as part of the Cancun Challenge that will be completed in Mexico.The Mountaineers are predetermined to face Old Dominion at Playa del Carmen, followed by either Wisconsin or Saint Louis.

WVU will play non-conference road games at Virginia Tech and Missouri in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.

The Mountaineers also will play two games in Charleston during December, against Marshall and William & Mary.

West Virginia’s only scheduled exhibition is against Fairmont State on Nov. 4.

    Thuggins hates to play in Charleston. All Charleston gets in MU and a patty cake patsy every year since Thuggins arrival. At least with Beilein, he wasn't afraid to play good teams in Charleston and win. Oklahoma and Florida.
    No Big Monday games? After last season's debacle, Thuggins couldn't land his team on a little monday telecast. Thuggins is going to take many a beatdown this season with only two experienced players back. Time for Thuggins to hang up the whistle, or treadmill, go sit on the beach with a cooler full of his favorite beverages, watch the world go by and vegatate. Much like his players did last season.

    • Oh Did Ya?

      Why would he want to play good teams at the Civic Center? The place is old, needs a facelift and no students would be there. The students right on the court is a big time home court advantage.

    Hope we finish in the upper echelon rather than the lower come the season.

    Thanks for the schedule, Allan. Looks like an exciting year for basketball.
