BYU basketball: WCC releases the 2013-14 women's basketball schedule
Ravell Call, Deseret News
PROVO – The West Coast Conference released the 2013-14 women’s basketball schedule Wednesday. Teams open up league play the last week of December.
“Our conference is as strong as it’s ever been this year with a lot of good teams that have very talented players returning,” BYU head coach Jeff Judkins said. “Every game is going to be a tough battle that should be a great challenge for us. Having traveling partners with the addition of Pacific is a good thing for our conference and with the number of very good teams that we have, we should get two or three teams in the NCAA tournament.”
The Cougars open the league slate with four straight home games beginning with a matchup against LMU on Dec. 28 and a contest vs. Pepperdine on the 30th.
The following week Pacific and Saint Mary’s come to play in the Marriott Center on Jan. 2 and 4, respectively.
Three road games follow as the Cougars travel to Gonzaga on Jan. 9 and to Portland on Jan. 11. A game at San Diego closes out the road swing on Jan. 18.
San Francisco and Santa Clara make appearances in the Marriott Center on Jan. 23 and 25, respectively, before BYU battles its next four league foes on the road.
The Cougars travel to Saint Mary’s on Jan. 30 and play at WCC newcomer Pacific on Feb. 1.
A game at Santa Clara on Feb. 6 and at San Francisco on Feb. 8 round out the road swing for BYU.
Portland and Gonzaga come to play in Provo on Feb. 13 and 15, respectively, before the Cougars take one last road trip in league action to battle Pepperdine on Feb. 20 and LMU on Feb. 22.
The team finishes conference play at home hosting San Diego on March 1, before heading to Las Vegas the following week for the WCC tournament that runs March 6-11 from the Orleans Arena.
