Alabama Women’s Basketball Finalizes 2017-18 Non-Conference Schedule
Alabama head coach Kristy Curry announced the 2017-18 women’s basketball non-conference schedule on Tuesday, which features a trip to Puerto Rico, nine home games, including one exhibition matchup, and three road contests.
The Crimson Tide will open up the season with four consecutive home games, beginning in exhibition on Nov. 1 against the University of Antelope Valley, an NAIA squad that defeated Pepperdine in exhibition a year ago and finished with a 19-7 record. The regular season tips off nine days later with Alabama A&M on Nov. 10. The Tide will then welcome Utah (Nov. 13) and Jacksonville (Nov. 16) before hitting the road for its next five straight matchups.
Alabama’s swing of away games starts on Nov. 19 at Georgia Southern and continues with a trip to Puerto Rico for the Thanksgiving holiday where the Tide will face a pair of 2017 NCAA tournament teams in NC State and Elon. Alabama then heads to TCU (Dec. 1) and Lipscomb (Dec. 7) to finish up its non-conference road slate.
The Tide returns to Coleman Coliseum on Dec. 10 to take on Grambling State. Following finals, Alabama will have a trio of games before breaking for the holidays, facing SMU (Dec. 17), Missouri State (Dec. 19) and Murray State (Dec. 20). The final non-conference matchup of the season will be played on Dec. 28 against Florida A&M.
