Cavalier fans will have their first chance to see the 2021-2022 UVA basketball teams in just over a month.
The Virginia basketball program has announced that the Pepsi Blue-White Scrimmages for the men’s and women’s basketball teams will take place on Saturday, October 16 at the John Paul Jones Arena. The scrum is taking place for the first time since 2019, as there has not been a scrum during the 2020 season due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The exact scrimmage times will be released once the Atlantic Coast Conference confirms the kick-off time for the UVA’s return home football game against Duke on the same day.
The women’s basketball scrum will take place first before the men’s basketball scrum. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no possibility for fans to meet the student-athletes after the scrums have ended as in the past.
The event is free and the doors and John Paul Jones Arena will open one hour before the start of the first scrum.
