The Penn State men’s basketball team announced its nonconference schedule in a press release Wednesday.

The Nittany Lions will host Lock Haven in an exhibition game Nov. 4.

Penn State will then open its season Nov. 11 against an opponent that has yet to be announced as part of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic. The Nittany Lions were originally scheduled to face Marist that day, but the tournament has had to work to reschedule games after the Albany-Duke game was canceled due to the North Carolina law that affects LGBT people.

Penn State will host Grand Canyon on Nov. 15 as part of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic before facing Duke on Nov. 19 at 12:30 p.m. at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The team will then play Cincinnati or Rhode Island on Nov. 20.

Penn State takes on Pittsburgh at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 10 as part of the Never Forget Tribute Classic at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The Nittany Lions are set to face St. John’s on Dec. 18 in the Hoops Holiday Festival at Madison Square Garden.

The Nittany Lions will host Duquesne (Nov. 13), Colgate (Nov. 23), Georgia Tech (Nov. 29; ACC/Big Ten Challenge), Wright State (Dec. 3), George Mason (Dec. 7) and Morgan State (Dec. 21).

Penn State plays at George Washington on Nov. 26.
