BYU Women’s Basketball announces non-conference schedule
BYU Women’s Basketball announced its 2020-2021 non-conference schedule Tuesday, with the Cougars’ first game on Nov. 27 against LSU.
“It’s been difficult to try and get our seven games, but we’ve put together a good schedule against good competition,” head coach Jeff Judkins said. “We’re excited about the teams we’re playing that will give our players plenty of experience playing in different venues against solid programs.”
Headlining the seven-game slate is a Nov. 27 matchup against LSU in the South Point Shootout, the Cougars multi-team event (MTE) this season. They will play three home games, two road games and two neutral court games in Las Vegas as part of their MTE.
To open the season, BYU will participate in the South Point Shootout in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving break. The Cougars will play LSU on Friday, Nov. 27, and Tennessee Martin on Saturday, Nov. 28.
After Thanksgiving, the team will head down to St. George for a game at Dixie State on Tuesday, Dec. 1. The Trailblazers are competing as a Division I program for the first time this year as members of the Western Athletic Conference.
The Cougars will then travel up to Logan on Monday, Dec. 7 for another in-state matchup, against the Aggies of Utah State.
BYU will then host three straight home games before beginning its conference schedule on Dec. 28. The Cougars play Montana State on Thursday, Dec. 10, and Boise State on Saturday, Dec. 12. They close the non-conference slate against Utah Valley on Tuesday, Dec. 15 in the Marriott Center.
Game times and broadcast plans for both non-conference and conference games this season will be announced at a future date.
