Navy men’s basketball to welcome Virginia Tech, Richmond and Utah State for 2021 Veterans Classic

It was a single game between host Navy and George Washington instead of a doubleheader. Also, the traditions of giving visiting teams an interactive tour of the Naval Academy and holding a dinner with a motivational speaker were also scrapped because of coronavirus protocols.

Navy athletics announced Thursday it will be business as usual for the 2021 Veterans Classic, which will be held Nov. 12 at Alumni Hall. Three schools with impressive postseason pedigrees will travel to Annapolis for the eighth installment of the event, which will be broadcast live by CBS Sports Network.

Richmond will battle Utah State in the opener at 6 p.
