The 2019-2020 schedule is sure to fire up Wildcat fans near and far.

 

A week after announcing its non-conference slate, Davidson’s 2019-20 men’s basketball campaign has been finalized with the unveiling of the Atlantic 10 Conference schedule, as released Wednesday by the league office.

The Wildcats’ A-10 portion will include 14 nationally televised contests, while the remaining four will be streamed on ESPN+.

Davidson, which is 59-31 (11.8 wins per year) in A-10 regular season games since joining the league in 2014-15, will play home/home series with Fordham, Rhode Island, Richmond, Saint Joseph’s and VCU.

The Wildcats will also host George Mason, La Salle, Massachusetts and Saint Louis, while traveling to Dayton, Duquesne, George Washington and St. Bonaventure.

After opening league play with two straight on the road – Duquesne (Jan. 5) and Rhode Island (Jan. 8) – Davidson will play four of its next six on McKillop Court beginning with Saint Joseph’s on Jan. 11.

The month of February will feature three ESPN Friday night contests – at VCU (Feb. 7), at St. Bonaventure (Feb. 14) and at Dayton (Feb. 28).

Following their March 3 contest at Richmond, the Wildcats will conclude the regular season with another Friday night showcase game when VCU (March 6) visits Belk Arena for Senior Night.

In addition to making its 23rd postseason appearance, including the 17th under McKillop, Davidson concluded the 2018-19 campaign 24-10 overall and 14-4 in league play.

Davidson returns its entire starting lineup from last season, including A-10 Player of the Year Jon Axel Gudmundsson and all-conference first-teamer Kellan Grady.

The 2020 Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship will be played March 11-15, 2020 at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
