GREENSBORO, N.C. - A 17-game home schedule, featuring eight games against Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) opponents and a visit by Big East Conference member Syracuse, highlight the Virginia men's basketball team's 2007-08 schedule released Thursday (Aug. 23) by the ACC.
Senior All-America guard Sean Singletary (Philadelphia, Pa.) is one of three starters and 10 lettermen returning from last year's Virginia team that compiled a 21-11 record, tied for the ACC regular-season championship and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. UVa head coach Dave Leitao was the 2007 ACC Coach of the Year.
Among the teams scheduled to visit UVa's John Paul Jones Arena during the 2007-08 season in addition to Syracuse are ACC opponents Duke, North Carolina, Boston College, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Maryland, NC State and Virginia Tech. The Cavaliers host Northwestern in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and also play non-conference opponents Drexel, Elon, Hampton, Hartford, Howard, Longwood and Vermont at home.
Virginia finished the 2006-07 season with a 16-1 record at the John Paul Jones Arena. The 16 wins at home are the most in the history of the UVa men's basketball program. Three of the victories came against teams ranked in the top 25 of The Associated Press rankings.
UVa's 2007-08 road schedule features games at Arizona and Xavier, two games in the Philly Classic tournament at the Palestra in Philadelphia, and eight games against ACC opponents. The Cavaliers are scheduled to play ACC games at Boston College, Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Miami, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
"We want to use our schedule to challenge ourselves to be ready for ACC play and hopefully beyond," Leitao said. "I think this schedule will provide that challenge."
Virginia opens the 2007-08 season against Vermont at the John Paul Jones Arena on Nov. 11.
