Virginia will meet Villanova in an early-November nonconference doubleheader in Baltimore, according to “College Hoops Today.”

The Cavaliers are coming off a first-round loss to Colorado State in the NCAA Tournament, while Villanova dropped an early-round game, 70-61, to VCU in the NIT. The Wildcats finished the season with an 18-16 record.

According to a source, the game will be played on Nov. 14 at Baltimore’s CFG Bank Arena. The other half of the doubleheader pits Virginia Tech against Penn State.

UVA trails in its all-time series to Villanova, 5-3, with the two teams splitting their most recent home-and-home games in 2016 and 2017.
