ST. LOUIS – The Atlantic 10 Conference has released its women’s basketball home and away match-ups for the 2017-18 season. Once again the A-10 will feature a 16-game slate, with each of the league’s 14 teams playing eight home games and eight road contests.
Saint Louis plays at home and on the road against conference foes Dayton, Fordham and George Washington. Davidson, Duquesne, Massachusetts, St. Bonaventure and Saint Joseph’s visit Chaifetz Arena, while SLU travels to George Mason, La Salle, Rhode Island, Richmond and VCU.
The Billikens play home games against each of the other five A-10 teams that made postseason appearances a year ago. Dayton (first round) reached the NCAA Championship, Fordham advanced to the WNIT second round, and Duquesne, George Washington and Saint Joseph’s were ousted in the WNIT first round.
The 2016-17 Billikens posted a 25-9 record and reached the WNIT second round. Three starters – seniors Jackie Kemph and Jenny Vliet and junior Jordyn Frantz – return from that team.
The complete A-10 schedule with game dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Click here for the Billikens’ nonconference schedule.
