A-10 announces scheduling pairings for women’s basketball

UD will play two of the top contenders home and away

The conference announced the scheduling pairings Thursday. Dayton and George Washington, who tied for the regular-season championship at 13-3, and Saint Louis, which finished a game back at 12-4, all play each other twice. Dayton also plays Fordham twice on the 16-game schedule.

"I am excited about our conference pairings and the challenge it presents to us,” said Dayton head coach Shauna Green said in a press release. “The league as always will be a grind and every game is going to be a battle. We will be tested having to play GW, Saint Louis, and Fordham twice. We can't wait to start this year’s journey in a couple weeks."
