The Temple Owls men’s basketball team will be playing the 2019 NCAA Champion Virginia Cavaliers. The game will take place on November 13, 2020 in the initial Basketball Hall of Fame Shootout, an event held in the Spectrum Center in Charlotte. The venue serves as the home of the Charlotte Bobcats.
The Shootout, announced by the Naismith Hall of Fame, will consist of a triple-header which also features Virginia Tech vs. Davidson and ECU playing Liberty.
Temple Coach Aaron McKie expressed excitement being in the Shootout and believes that playing the 2019 national champions will be a highlight of their non-conference schedule.
