The official schedule is listed below. The Trojans will play a double round robin schedule in both the SEOAL and OVC. That will comprise 20 games, with only 2 non-conference games left to fill the 22 game slate. Those non-conference games will be at home vs. Wheelersburg and Chillicothe, and will be part of a Christmas Holiday tournament. Wheelersburg, Chillicothe, Notre Dame, South Gallia, Peebles, Minford, and Portsmouth round out the field. PHS will play Wheelersburg the first night and Chillicothe the next day. PHS will not be going to Florida this year, but plan on going next season. The Trojans should be favored to win both leagues in 2014-2015, and never in PHS basketball history has a team won 2 league titles in 1 season.
