With UCONN getting a homecoming game in Nevada for Gabby Williams next season, the non-conference opponents portion of UCONN's schedule has been set.

Home:
Cal
Louisville
Maryland
Notre Dame

Away:
DePaul
Nevada
Ohio State
South Carolina
Texas
UCLA

Neutral:
Duquesne(Toronto)
Michigan State(Eugene, OR)
Oklahoma(Mohegan Sun)

Is this tougher than this years non-conference schedule? Hmmmm...

Toronto? What event is that?

Eugene vs Mich State? I assume that must be some Nike invite thing?

Toronto is the homecoming game for Kia Nurse. UConn always tries to get a game for it's seniors close to their home. Nurse, I believe, is from Hamilton, Ont.

And yes, the game vs Mich St is part of a Nike event. http://www.uconnhuskies.com/sports/w-baskbl/spec-rel/012517aaa.html

Most, if not all teams try to schedule games close to a players' home. Last I knew, teams couldn't schedule single games in foreign countries like that, it always had to be part of an exempt event. Like Purdue couldn't just randomly schedule a single game in Puerto Rico vs Florida International even if they had someone from there. Teams with kids from that part of Canada traditionally scheduled Buffalo, Niagara or Canisius. I wonder if it has to be considered an exempted event or an exhibition or something. Interesting...

And thank you for that link about that event...pretty cool.

Last year I was told that they were trying to schedule an event to promote the Final Four that included Uconn. They were trying to get Stanford and Tennessee to round out the event. Having heard any follow up about it.

Purdue's schedule won't help the B1G RPI.

Well, in December 2013, Notre Dame played Duquesne in Toronto in a real, regular season, single game at Ryerson University in Toronto. I believe it was considered a Notre Dame home game. It was the homecoming game for Natalie Achonwa, and Duquesne also had a couple of Canadian players. It looks like they have a couple of Canadians again next year, so the game with UConn again makes sense for both schools.

The pre-game release for ND for that game said:

"The Notre Dame women's basketball program has had a knack for making history, and the No. 5/6 Fighting Irish will do so once again at 2 p.m. (ET) Sunday when they play their first-ever regular-season game in Canada, taking on Duquesne at the sold-out Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto. The game will be streamed live and free of charge through the official Notre Dame athletics multimedia platform, WatchND, with the host school, Ryerson University, providing the content."

Mattamy Athletic Center is Ryerson's arena and occupies part of the old Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto. I understand they played the 2015 Pan Am Games basketball there as well.

Good Lord, that's a pile of shit. Only two true road games. Not even a reasonably good exhibition jabronie. Only two (well, three with the challenge) Power 5 schools (and USC may be in flux and Utah was near the bottom of the Pac-12 this year IIRC).

(also, go get 'em, Coach Duffy!)

Good grief, that looks like a JMU schedule, only worse. And JMU is a mid-major! For shame, Sharon!

Yeah, that's not very good. I know they are trying to maximize home games but wow. Also, in regards to that Basketball Travelers event, they don't always have a ton of say in who they get to play in it. That event is run by the group headquartered in Washington and they are the ones that look to fill the field once they have established host schools.

Thanks for that info. Evidently the NCAA had adjusted scheduling rules a while ago.

Four WNIT teams and no NCAA teams. Rolling Eyes They will probably get one NCAA participant via the ACC.
