West Virginia men’s basketball announced on Wednesday morning that they will host Bowling Green in a charity exhibition game on Friday, Oct. 28. Proceeds of the event will go to the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund.

The game is set to tip off at 7 p.m. inside the WVU Coliseum. Information on individual tickets will be announced at a later date.

Last season, West Virginia finished 16-17 as the team struggled in a dominant Big 12 Conference. The Mountaineers will be debuting a new-look roster this season as the team retooled its roster through the transfer portal. WVU’s coaching staff picked up Emmitt Matthews Jr., Erik Stevenson, Joe Toussaint and Tre Mitchell from the portal, while also bringing in three JUCO players.

West Virginia will open up their regular season starting on Nov. 7 against Mount St. Mary’s.
