Women’s basketball releases non-conference schedule

The women’s basketball team announced its non-conference schedule Wednesday, a slate of games highlighted by home games against Auburn and George Mason as well as a trip to Miami, Fla., to play in the Wyndham Miami Holiday Tournament.

The Colonials will open their season in Minneapolis, Minn., with the Best Buy Classic. GW will open that tournament Nov. 13 against Wisconsin-Green Bay and then will play either Minnesota or Northern Illinois Nov. 14.

Head coach Mike Bozeman’s squad will wrap up the month of November with three home games at the Smith Center against Coppin State Nov. 18, North Texas Nov. 21 and Ohio Nov. 30.

GW will stay busy through December, playing host to George Mason, Stony Brook and Auburn while taking on Marshall, Old Dominion and District-rival American on the road.

The Colonials will close out non-conference play with two games in the Wyndham Miami Holiday Tournament against Miami and Morgan State Dec. 28 and 29, followed by a road game against longtime rival Rutgers in Piscataway, N.J.
