WILMINGTON – After release a large portion of their 2020-21 schedule, UNCW men’s basketball has completed its upcoming season’s schedule by releasing nine additional non-conference matchups.

The Seahawks are set to begin the season next week on Nov. 25 when they take on Western Carolina. UNCW will follow up their contest with the Catamounts in a showdown with UNC Asheville and Troy on Nov. 27 and 28 to close out the MTE tournament in Asheville, NC.

UNCW’s first conference opponent of the 2020-21 season will be Jan. 2 and 3 when they head to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to face off against Drexel for a weekend series. The Seahawks will look to get revenge after losing to the Dragons last year in the CAA Championship.

UNCW will return home a week later for their first home game of the 2020-21 season against James Madison on Jan. 9 and 10. The Hawks again will be eying revenge after losing the season series to the Bulldogs last year.
