Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Pairings Set for 2021-22
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — The Atlantic 10 Conference’s men’s basketball pairings have been set for 2021-22, the league office announced Thursday morning.
Each of the league’s 14 teams will play an 18-game slate, including five opponents both at home and away, while also playing four only at home and four solely on the road.
The Davidson Wildcats, who joined the league for the 2014-15 season, will host and visit Duquesne, Fordham, Rhode Island, Saint Joseph’s and VCU.
Additionally, George Mason, La Salle, UMass and Saint Louis will visit Belk Arena for their sole meetings with the Wildcats, while Davidson will travel to Dayton, George Washington, Richmond and last season’s A-10 champion, St. Bonaventure.
The Wildcats are 76-43 (.639) in seven A-10 regular seasons, including 7-4 in the 2020-21 season, which was significantly altered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Davidson won the A-10 regular season title in 2015 and the league’s tournament championship in 2018.
After going 13-9 last season, the Wildcats are set to return three starters, including 6-7 guard Hyunjung Lee, the first Wildcat to shoot at least 50 percent from the field (.508), 40 percent from 3-point range (.442) and 90 percent from the foul line (.90) in a season. The rising junior is the team’s top returning scorer, with a 13.5 points per game average last season.
