Wagner adds UConn, Pitt to hoops schedule

By Kieran Darcy

Wagner coach Dan Hurley is ramping up the Seahawks' schedule in Year 2 of his tenure.

The school announced on Tuesday that it will face both UConn and Pittsburgh this coming season.

After opening up its season on Saturday, Nov. 12 at Princeton, Wagner will travel to play UConn -- the defending national champion -- on Monday, Nov. 14.

The following month, on Friday, Dec. 23, the Seahawks will play at Pitt, another perennial Big East power.

"We are really excited to play such top-notch competition," said Hurley in a statement. "I think it will help our players get ready for a deep Northeast Conference."

Hurley returns his entire starting five from last season, and also is bringing in an impressive recruiting class.
