The UNCG men’s and women’s basketball teams have announced their 2017-18 schedules, and this year Spartan fans can expect some tough non-conference competition and exciting home-court action.

The men’s team – coming off one of its best seasons in Division I history – will play 17 games at home, including 13 in the Greensboro Coliseum. The squad’s non-conference schedule includes the Nov. 10 season opener at Virginia, as well as road games against Wake Forest and NC State.

“We are excited about our 2017-18 schedule,” said Head Coach Wes Miller. “This schedule will challenge us in the non-conference play and help prepare us for Southern Conference action. The SoCon will be ultra-competitive again this year after one of the best seasons in league play in recent memory.”

The women’s team will take on ACC powerhouses Duke and Virginia on the road. Back at home, Spartan fans will have the opportunity to see 15 games at Fleming Gym.

“We have a great home court advantage at Fleming Gymnasium, where we went 12-4 last year and 6-1 in the SoCon,” said Head Coach Trina Patterson. “We’re looking to build off of that and continue to give the city of Greensboro a great product on our home floor.”

Season tickets are now available and can be purchased by calling the UNCG Athletics Ticket Office at 336-334-3250. Season tickets for men’s basketball start at $129 in the lower level, and discounts for faculty and staff are available. All season ticket holders for men’s basketball will receive complimentary season tickets for all 15 women’s basketball home games.
