The University of Cincinnati women’s basketball (WBB) team has released its 2017-2018 schedule.
During renovations at Fifth Third Arena, Bearcats WBB will be playing all but three of their home games in 2017-2018 at St. Ursula Academy.
UC’s first two home dates, a November 2nd exhibition game against Findlay and their November 13th regular season home debut against Slippery Rock, will be played at Cincinnati State. UC will play a third Cincinnati State home game on Monday November 27th against St. Francis (Pa.).
Cincinnati’s 2017-2018 home slate includes exciting non-conference home dates against Pittsburgh (November 21st) and Ohio State (December 17th).
The Bearcats’ conference schedule includes home games against American Conference powers such as South Florida and Tulane, but does not include a home match-up with national power UConn. Cincinnati will be travelling to the Nutmeg State on February 4th to face the Huskies.
Keep an eye on Down the Drive for a full preview of Jamelle Elliott’s Cincinnati Bearcats women’s basketball team in the coming weeks. UC looks to build on an impressive 2016-17 campaign in which the Bearcats posted a 16-14 record, their first winning season since 2006-2007.
