BOCA RATON, FL - Head Coach Chancellor Dugan and the Florida Atlantic University women's basketball team have announced their schedule for the 2007-08 season.
"We've put together a very challenging out of conference schedule, including members of the Southeastern Conference and the Atlantic Coast Conference," said Dugan. "We also host two tournaments, and then we get into Sun Belt play. The non-conference schedule should prepare us for what we're going to face in conference play."
The Owls will open the year on the road at Miami on November 9, six days before their home opener on November 15 against Palm Beach Atlantic.
Other highlights of the schedule include a November 18 match-up with Kentucky and two home tournaments: the FAU Thanksgiving Classic and the FAU Holiday Classic.
The Thanksgiving Classic pits FAU against Robert Morris and Samford on November 24 and 25, respectively. The FAU Classic brings Columbia and St. Bonaventure to FAU Arena on December 1 and 2.
The Owls round out the non-conference home schedule with the Eagles of Eastern Michigan on December 6. The conference schedule opens with a road contest against Arkansas State on December 18, and the first Sun Belt home game is January 3 against South Alabama.
