The top three teams in the Atlantic 10 women’s basketball standings last season will play each other home and away in the 2017-18 season.

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.

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."
