OREM, Utah – The Utah Valley Wolverines announced their 2019-20 basketball schedule, which will be the first season under first year head coach Mark Madsen.
“We are playing a fantastic schedule this coming year,” said Madsen. “As a program, one of our priorities is to play against top competition each year. In November, we fly to Lexington for a game against Kentucky, which will be a great test. We will not shy away from traveling with additional road games at UAB, Colorado State, and Wyoming. On a local level, we are excited to play Weber State at home and Southern Utah on the road as we hope to add to the rich basketball tradition in the state of Utah.”

The Wolverines will face Westminster at home on November 5 to begin the regular season. They will then hit the road on November 9 against Denver. UVU will face Ottawa from Arizona on November 12.
