West Virginia University athletics revealed the non-conference slate for the women’s basketball team Tuesday afternoon.

The Mountaineers will open the season in the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout in Las Vegas, Nevada against Fresno State on Nov. 27. They will then turn around and play LSU in the same event on Nov. 28.

WVU coach Mike Carey announced these two games last week, saying any other year opening the season in Las Vegas would be fun, but because of the pandemic, the team will mostly be confined to the hotel for their stay.
