2019-20 Women's Basketball Schedule

SEWANEE, Tenn. - Announced by third-year head coach Tracey Braden, the Sewanee women's basketball team have announced the program's 2019-20 schedule.

The Tigers will start the season with the Agnes Scott Tip-Off Classic on Nov. 8-9 to take on Maryville (Tenn.) and the host Scotties in Decatur, Ga.

Following a trip to Berea (Ky.) on Nov. 12, the Tigers will host the Sewanee Classic Hoops Tournament Nov. 15-16, as Belhaven (Miss.), Johnson (Tenn.) and the Mississippi University for Women make the trip to the Domain.

Sewanee will play Belhaven in the team's home opener on Friday, Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. The Tigers and Blazers will square off for just the second time, with their first meeting coming in 1986.

The next day, the team will tangle with the Royals, who will play each other for the first time since 2014.

November concludes with a contest at Covenant (Nov. 19) before wrapping up the month with Emory (Ga.) on Nov. 26.

Sewanee's December begins with a trip to Columbus, Miss. to face the Mississippi University for Women on Dec. 4.

The non-conference schedule concludes with home games with Wesleyan (Ga.) on Dec. 11 and Huntingdon (Ala.) on Dec. 20 and a trip to Maryville (Tenn.) on New Year's Day.

The conference opener is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7 at home against Centre. Other home conference games include Oglethorpe (Jan. 10), Berry (Jan. 12), Rhodes (Jan. 17), Hendrix (Jan. 19), Millsaps (Jan. 31) and Birmingham-Southern (Feb. 2).

Beginning this season, the top-four teams in the conference at the end of the regular season will host a quarterfinal game on Saturday, Feb. 22.

The semifinals and championship, scheduled for Feb. 29 and March 1, will be hosted by the highest remaining seed.
