Boston College taps off its 2013-14 men's basketball season with a road trip to Providence on Friday, Nov. 8, followed by a clash two days later on the parquet floor at TD Garden against the University of Massachusetts in the Coaches vs. Cancer Boston Tip-Off.

The Sunday showdown at the Garden is part of a tripleheader that will also include Boston University-Northeastern and Harvard-Holy Cross, a must-see for college hoop followers.

That's just the start of a challenging 31-game regular-season slate for Steve Donahue and his Eagles that features the traditional Atlantic Coast Conference matchups, including newcomers Notre Dame and Syracuse.

But the Eagles (16-17 a year ago) will also take on Connecticut for the first time since 2005, facing the Huskies at Madison Square Garden in the championship round of the 2K Sports Classic Nov. 21, which benefits the Wounded Warrior Project.

BC takes on Virginia Commonwealth in the Brooklyn Hoops Winter Festival Saturday, Dec. 28, and then crosses the Charles to take on Harvard, likely a preseason Top 25 squad, on New Year's Day.

The home opener at Conte Forum is Thursday, Nov. 14, against Toledo, in the first round of the 2K Sports Classic.

The Eagles will host just four non-conference games, their lowest total since the 1996-97 season.
