Report: WVU to Play in 2021 Charleston Classic



West Virginia is one of eight teams that will play in the 2021 Charleston Classic, according to a report by national basketball analyst Jeff Goodman.

The Mountaineers will be joined by Boise State, Clemson, Marquette, St. Bonaventure, Temple and two teams yet to be named in a three-day, eight-team bracket at TD Arena on the campus of College of Charleston.

It will be West Virginia’s first appearance at the event, which has been contested annually since 2008. Florida beat Xavier in the finals of the 2019 tournament, which is run by ESPN.

Bob Huggins’ squad is playing in the Battle 4 Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas this November, in a field that also contains Creighton, Duke, Ohio State, Texas A&M, Utah, Wichita State and Memphis.

West Virginia will also host Pitt, visit Georgetown in the Big East/Big 12 Battle and play Purdue in the Hall of Fame Invitational at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and face an opponent to be announced in the Big 12/SEC Challenge to highlight its 2020-21 non-conference schedule.
