Hey, Virginia, who made this schedule?

Here's hoping the Virginia Cavaliers are having a strong and productive offseason.

They'll need it the way their schedule is shaping up. The latest heavyweight confirmed to take on the Cavaliers is Tennessee, which released its schedule Wednesday. The Lady Vols will host Virginia on Nov. 18 (a Thursday).

This means that, over a 15-day span, the Cavaliers will face Tennessee (32-3), Iowa State (25-8), West Virginia (29-6), TCU (22-9) and Ohio State (31-5). That's five NCAA tournament teams, five 20-win teams, two 30-win teams and two major conference champions (Tennessee: SEC; Ohio State: Big Ten).

Oh, and zero home games. In addition to traveling to Tennessee and Ohio State, the Cavaliers will face the other three teams during the Paradise Jam in the Virgin Islands.

Keep working, Cavs.

Other tidbits from the Tennessee schedule:

- The Lady Vols' annual matchup with Old Dominion is set for Sunday, Dec. 5 at 2 p.m. in Norfolk.

- Georgetown, featuring Suffolk's own Sugar Rodgers, will get its first-ever shot at Tennessee on Nov. 27 in the Virgin Islands during the Paradise Jam.
