Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg athletics and head men's basketball coach Hilliary Scott are excited to announce the Hornets' 2019-20 men's basketball schedule.

The Hornets' schedule features 11 home contests on Wayne Proffitt Court in Turner Gymnasium and three games against NCAA tournament qualifiers from a season ago.

Lynchburg will begin the season on the road at Hood College's MMI Tip-Off Tournament in Frederick, Md., Nov. 8-9.

The Hornets' home debut is set for Saturday, Nov. 16, when they will play host to Pfeiffer at 6 p.m. in Game 2 of the Wayne Proffitt Classic. Hampden-Sydney and Methodist will comprise the early matchup, and the two Old Dominion Athletic Conference schools will trade opponents the following afternoon.

Lynchburg will travel east the following weekend to Newport News for the Christopher Newport Classic, where it will square off with 2019 national semifinalist Christopher Newport and, the following day, Mary Washington.

December brings the start of ODAC play as the Hornets will visit Bridgewater Sunday, Dec. 1 and follow that with a trip to Ferrum and a home date with Eastern Mennonite before breaking for the holidays.

New Year's Day brings Lynchburg back to Turner Gymnasium for a non-conference date with William Peace, and Jan. 4 marks a return to league play as Virginia Wesleyan comes to town. Other home contests in January include Hampden-Sydney, Ferrum, and Washington and Lee.

February brings crosstown rival Randolph, Guilford, and Roanoke to town before the Hornets prepare for the ODAC tournament, held at its usual site in the Salem Civic Center, Feb. 28-March 1.

Lynchburg is looking to build on an historic 2018-19 campaign during which they matched the program's best-ever regular-season record and were ranked in the D3hoops.com top 25 poll for the first time in program history. The Hornets finished 20-6 and reached as high as No. 14 in the national rankings.
