For the next two seasons, the West Virginia men’s basketball team will compete against one of the top teams in Conference USA, according to a report by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. Rothstein reports that WVU has scheduled a home-and-home series with UBA that will send the Mountaineers to Birmingham next season and bring the Dragons to Morgantown in 2022-23.

Under first-year head coach Andy Kennedy, the Dragons went 22-7 (13-5 C-USA) in 2020-21. UAB is 2-1 all-time against West Virginia. The two teams last played in 1991 with the Dragons winning 88-84. UAB also beat the Mountaineers 66-62 in a meeting in the 1988 season. WVU’s lone win against the Dragons came in the 1987 season.

Also reportedly on WVU’s schedule for next season will be an appearance in the 2021 Charleston Classic and a non-conference game against Kent State.
