NEWBERRY - Newberry College head men's basketball coach Dave Davis has announced the Wolves' 2014-15 regular season schedule, featuring a number of local rivals in the non-conference portion of the schedule.

The Wolves are coming off of their third consecutive season setting the South Atlantic Conference's scoring record, also finishing as one of the nation's top teams with 91.9 points per game. Newberry advanced to the SAC Tournament semifinals against Lincoln Memorial as the fifth seed and had a winning record for the third straight season.

Outside of the home-and-home regular season series with the SAC's other 11 member institutions, Newberry has five non-conference games on the schedule.

The season starts at Coker's new DeLoach Center with the new Little Four Classic, which features the Wolves, Coker, Erskine and North Greenville. The rotating event will see the two SAC schools play the Conference Carolinas schools each of the next four years. The event will come to Newberry in 2016. Newberry plays Erskine on Nov. 14 and North Greenville on Nov. 15

A familiar rival from Newberry's days in the Palmetto State Conference and NAIA will also have a home-and-home series with the scarlet and gray, as Southern Wesleyan makes the transition to NCAA Division II. Newberry travels to the Upstate and historic Tysinger Gym on Nov. 28, while the Warriors come to Eleazer on Dec. 13.

The final non-conference opponent is a new foe, as the Wolves will face off with the College of Faith from Charlotte for the first time. That game is slated to take place in Newberry on Dec. 10.
