LOGAN, Utah – Utah State men’s basketball announced that they will face Richmond in the 2021 Veterans Classic, hosted by the United States Naval Academy.

Four teams will be in the field for the Veterans Classic with Utah State being a part of it. The Aggies will face Richmond on Friday, November 12 at 4 p.m. MT and will be followed by Navy vs. Virginia Tech at 6:30 p.m. MT.

This will be a part of Utah State’s non-conference slate. The games will be played in Annapolis, Maryland.

“We are thrilled to be invited to compete in the Veterans Classic,” USU head coach Ryan Odom said. “It’s an honor to visit Navy and it will be an incredible experience for our players, coaches and Aggie supporters.”

It’s the first time that the Aggies and Spiders will face each other in basketball. Richmond finished the previous season with a 14-9 record, while advancing to the second round of the NIT.

Along with playing at Navy, Utah State and the other participating teams will immerse themselves in the inner workings of the U.S. Naval Academy through guided tours held on Thursday, November 11. Both games will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network.

Utah State will enter their first season under Ryan Odom as head coach who left UMBC to coach the Aggies. He took the vacant spot left by Craig Smith, who became the head coach of the Utah Runnin’ Utes program.

Former UMBC players R.J. Eytle-Rock and Brandon Horvath joined coach Odom in Logan. The Aggies also picked up former Utes Rylan Jones and Norbert Thelissen.
