WVU Men’s Basketball Team To Host Charity Exhibition Game


The West Virginia University men’s basketball team will host a charity exhibition game against Penn State inside the WVU Coliseum on Saturday, Nov. 3. Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross’ hurricane relief efforts.

The game time will be determined once the WVU-Texas football game time is set. Recently, the NCAA approved that an institution may use one of its possible two exhibition games against a Division I institution for the purposes of raising funds for a catastrophic event. The two teams will play a regulation 40-minute game.

Tickets for the WVU-Penn State game are included as part of the men’s basketball season ticket package. Information on individual ticket sales and admission for WVU students will be announced at a later date. Additional information on how fans attending the game can support the American Red Cross’ hurricane relief efforts will be announced in the coming weeks.

Last year, WVU played a charity exhibition game against Albany at the WVU Coliseum, also raising money for the American Red Cross’ hurricane relief efforts.

“This is a great event to tip off our basketball season, and we encourage everyone to come out to the WVU Coliseum,” WVU coach Bob Huggins said. “But more importantly, we can use the game of basketball to provide relief and to raise as much money as possible in support of the hurricane relief efforts through the American Red Cross.”

    WVU was originally scheduled to play an exhibition against Alderson-Broaddus on that date. Will it be rescheduled?

    It does replace AB.

    WVU’s second allowable scrimmage will be closed against another D1 opponent.
