Non-Conference Schedule Announced for SDSU Women’s Basketball
It was announced recently that Sioux Falls would be playing host to a marquee early season matchup between WNIT Champion South Dakota State and NCAA Women's National Champion South Carolina.
On Wednesday, GoJacks.com published an article announcing the remainder of the non-conference opponents this season for the Jackrabbit women.
Last season, SDSU engineered an improbable run to win the WNIT, and finished the season with a mark of 29-9.
Per the article, the team will have 5 non-conference home games, which does not include the South Carolina game (Dec. 15), which is at neutral site Sioux Falls.
Home non-conference opponents this season include Creighton (Nov. 7), Lehigh (Nov. 11) Mississippi State (Nov. 14), Northern Iowa (Dec. 3), and UT Martin (Dec. 12).
Sandwiched in between those home non-conference contests will be quite the trip for the Jackrabbits, as the team will compete in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament Nov. 19-21. It will be quite the test for SDSU as the field includes Gonzaga, Louisville, Marquette, Rutgers, Tennessee, Texas and UCLA.
Other non-conference games on the road include games at Washington State and Montana State. The team will also have a neutral site matchup against Kansas State.
