West Virginia to host Penn State in men’s basketball exhibition game
Penn State and West Virginia men’s basketball teams will play a charity exhibition game Nov. 3 at the WVU Coliseum in Morgantown.
The proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross’ hurricane relief effort.
The time of the game will be determined after the WVU-Texas football game 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.
“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.”
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.
Ticket information will be announced in the coming weeks.
