Date Change for Richmond-Virginia Men's Basketball Game
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The University of Virginia men's basketball team will play the University of Richmond at Richmond's Robins Center on November 16 in the first game of the 1997-98 season for both teams. The game was originally scheduled for November 15, but was moved in the interest of fans of the two schools who might want to attend football games involving Richmond and Virginia on that date. Richmond plays a football game at William and Mary, and Virginia plays at North Carolina State on November 15.
Virginia's game with Richmond is one of three games the Cavaliers are scheduled to play at the Robins Center during the 1997-98 season as part of the NationsBank Virginia Challenge. In addition to the season-opener with Richmond, UVa plays Virginia Commonwealth (Dec. 13) and Wake Forest (Jan. 4) at the Robins Center.
Tickets for the NationsBank Virginia Challenge can be purchased by calling the University of Virginia athletic ticket office (1-800-542-UVA1) Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Tickets are being sold as a three-game package until October 13. If there are tickets remaining on that date, single-game tickets will go on sale.
The three-game ticket package costs $50. If available on October 13, single-game tickets are $25 for the Wake Forest game, and $20 for the Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth games. All seats are reserved. Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth have a limited number of tickets for the game each school plays with Virginia.
