Virginia Tech logoHokies open league slate Dec. 3 vs. Louisville Men’s Basketball

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Atlantic Coast Conference revealed the 2023-24 men’s basketball schedule Tuesday evening, with Virginia Tech opening its league slate at Cassell Coliseum on Sunday, Dec. 3 vs. Louisville.

In all, the Hokies host five ACC weekend games to go along with two Big Monday matchups: defending ACC champion Duke on Jan. 29 and in-state rival Virginia on Feb. 19.

Single-game and group ticket options go on sale on Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET for Hokie Scholarship Fund (HSF) top-three donor levels (as of March 1, 2023), noon for the rest of HSF donors and 2 p.m. for the public. Sign up for more information.

Of Tech’s 20 league games, the Hokies are set for home-and-home dates with Florida State, Louisville, Miami, Notre Dame, Virginia and Wake Forest. Additionally, VT will welcome Boston College, Clemson, Duke and Georgia Tech to Blacksburg, while the Hokies will travel to North Carolina, NC State, Pitt and Syracuse.

Tech tips off its previously announced 11-game nonconference slate on Monday, Nov. 6 vs. Coppin State at 8 p.m.

The Commonwealth Clash, presented by Smithfield, features the Hokies and the Cavaliers squaring off on Wednesday, Jan. 17 in Charlottesville, followed by the return trip to Blacksburg on Monday, Feb. 19. Tech and UVA split the season series last year, with each side winning at home. VT has won three in a row at home in the series.

Tech’s conference opener vs. Louisville marks the fourth straight season it will open ACC play at home. The New York Life ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament will run March 12-16 at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.

Mike Young enters his fifth season at the helm of the Hokies and welcomes back eight returners from last season, including two starters in Hunter Cattoor and Sean Pedulla, who was listed in The Almanac’s Top 100. Tech should be a much deeper team this year, especially in the backcourt with sophomores MJ Collins and Rodney Rice, and the additions of Brandon Rechsteiner and Jaydon Young. Tech also landed three versatile wings in Robbie Beran, Tyler Nickel and Mekhi Long out of the transfer portal.
