MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (September 13, 2019) – The West Virginia University men’s basketball team will host a charity exhibition game against Duquesne inside the WVU Coliseum on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund.
This will be the third year in a row that WVU has played in a charity exhibition basketball game. Last year, WVU played Penn State and faced Albany in 2017. 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-Duquesne 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 Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund will be announced in the coming weeks. To order 2019-20 men’s basketball season tickets, visit WVUGAME.com or call 1-800-WVU GAME.
The WVU-Duquesne game will be televised by AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh.
