JMU men's basketball announces 2019-2020 CAA schedule

By  | 

HARRISONBURG, Va. -- The James Madison men's basketball team will close out the 2019 calendar year at home against perennial powers Hofstra and Northeastern to kick off the Dukes' 2019-20 Colonial Athletic Association schedule, as announced by the program on Thursday.

The league's teams will again conduct an 18-game schedule in CAA play, with all 10 programs facing each other once at home and once on the road. The regular season slate opens on Saturday, Dec. 28, before concluding on Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020.

After opening at home, the Dukes will immediately head south to open the new year at UNCW and College of Charleston on Jan. 2 and Jan. 4, respectively. All dates and times of CAA games are subject to change as the league finalizes television schedules.

The 2020 CAA Men's Basketball Championship will be held on March 7-10, 2020, at the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington, D.C. for the first time after three seasons in North Charleston, S.C.

This season will be the second of a five-year rotating league schedule that pairs each school with a travel partner. With the exception of the opening weekend (Saturday/Monday), teams will compete in a Thursday/Saturday format that features back-to-back games at home or on the road. During the two weeks in which a team faces its travel partner, both squads will have a bye on Thursday night before playing on Saturday.
