NCAA Saint Louis Virginia Tech Basketball

SLU's Jordan Goodwin, right, battles Virginia Tech's Nickeil Alexander-Walker, in the NCAA Tournament last season.

St. Louis University will open the basketball season with six home games and has a nonconference schedule highlighted by meetings with Seton Hall at Chaifetz Arena, Auburn in Birmingham, Ala., and Kansas State in Kansas City.

The Billikens play only one true road game at Boston College before opening Atlantic 10 play at Duquesne. They have three games that will qualify as neutral site although the game against Auburn, which reached the Final Four last season, will be played a two-hour drive north of the Tigers’ campus.

SLU’s season opener is Nov. 5 against Florida Gulf Coast at Chaifetz. Other nonconference home opponents include Valparaiso, Eastern Washington, Seton Hall, High Point, Belmont, Division II Maryville, Southern Illinois-Carbondale and Bethune Cookman.
