Iowa women’s basketball releases full 2018-19 non-conference schedule
The Iowa women’s basketball team has released its 2018-19 non-conference schedule, with four likely match-ups with NCAA Tournament teams.
The Hawkeyes, coming off an NCAA Tournament appearance themselves, will open the season with an exhibition against Dakota Wesleyan on Nov. 6. The regular season then gets underway on Nov. 9 with a home date against Oral Roberts before they travel to Western Kentucky, which qualified for the 2018 NCAA Tournament.
Iowa’s non-conference schedule also include road dates with defending champion Notre Dame and tournament qualifier Drake, with a rematch with Florida State possible in the Junkanoo Jam. The Hawkeyes will also once again face in-state rival Iowa State and UNI, with each of those games at home.
The Big Ten opponents for the upcoming season have been announced but a conference schedule will be released at a later date, as will all tipoff times and television information.
