UD women’s basketball team opens A-10 play Dec. 4

The Dayton Flyers women’s basketball team will get an early start in Atlantic 10 Conference play. The first of 16 A-10 games will be played at UD Arena on Dec. 4 against La Salle.

The A-10 released its full schedule Wednesday. Dayton plays five non-conference games in between its first and second A-10 games. A home game against Massachusetts on New Year's Eve is the second A-10 game for Dayton. Dayton plays its first road game Jan. 4 at St. Bonaventure.

Dayton’s toughest stretch comes in January when it plays the three teams that tied for the regular-season championship last season in a row: home vs. George Washington on Jan. 8; at Duquesne on Jan. 10; at Saint Louis on Jan. 15.

Dayton plays each of those three teams again in the last four games. Dayton will celebrate Senior Night on Feb. 22 against Saint Louis.
