LEWISBURG, Pa. — Bucknell's 2006-07 men’s basketball schedule and ticketing information have been announced. The home opener is Nov. 14 against Wake Forest.
"I feel we have put together a schedule of games that our players have come to relish playing in," said head coach Pat Flannery. "We are going to some great venues against some outstanding teams. The non-conference schedule certainly represents a challenge, but it will also prepare us well for Patriot League play."
Season highlights include:
The Nov. 14 home opener against traditional Atlantic Coast Conference power Wake Forest, which will become the first ACC team ever to play basketball on the Bucknell campus.
The Dec. 2 home game against Northern Iowa, a rematch of last season’s thrilling double-overtime ESPN BracketBusters contest won by the Panthers in Cedar Falls.
A first-ever home game in the ESPN BracketBusters event on Feb. 17 against an opponent to be determined.
A confirmed ESPN2 date against legendary coach Bobby Knight and Texas Tech on Dec. 23 in Lubbock.
A matchup with reigning NCAA Final Four participant George Mason at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., as part of the BB&T Classic tripleheader on Dec. 3.
