WVU Men’s Basketball To Host Akron In Exhibition Contest

A packed house at the WVU Coliseum in 2018

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia University men’s basketball team will host a charity exhibition game against Akron at the WVU Coliseum on Friday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund.

This will be the fourth time that WVU has played in a charity exhibition basketball game. The last time was in 2019 when WVU hosted Duquesne to benefit the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund.

The Mountaineer football team hosts Iowa State the next day, Sat., Oct. 30.

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 non-profit organization of the school’s choice. The two teams will play a regulation 40-minute game.

    Akron is a decent team.  3rd in the MAC last year.  15-8 overall.  Will be a good test for this team.

    Did they announce the super secret exhibition game opponent?

    Butlereer: The secret exhibition opponent is never announced publicly, though the identity almost always comes out, but typically not until October.

    will BGN be there covering the game?

    #152898

    Greg, someone in the media always leaks ???? the opponent, date, venue, box score and game notes after the game.  Never announced, but always covered.  We should expect the same this year.

    No media is allowed to cover the secret scrimmage. Thus, the name, secret scrimmage.

    Nothing is secret
