LAFAYETTE — With the 2019-20 basketball season tipping off in less than 60 days, the Louisiana Women’s Basketball team has announced the non-conference portion of its schedule, head coach Garry Brodhead announced.

The newly announced schedule features five games against opponents from the state of Louisiana and includes two matchups with SEC foes, including a big home contest against national power Mississippi State (Dec. 16).

“I think that we have put together a quality non-conference schedule,” Brodhead said. “Our team has worked really hard this offseason, and I think that our trip to Cuba really brought us all together and prepared us for the grind that comes with the season. I am looking forward to getting back to work with this group and I cannot wait to play in front of our incredible fans at the Cajundome.”

Louisiana will play two tune-up games to prepare for the season, opening with Mississippi College in the Cajundome on Oct. 28 and hosting Springhill on Nov. 1.

The regular season kicks off on Thursday, Nov. 7, when the Ragin’ Cajuns welcome Loyola University (New Orleans) to Lafayette. The team then plays its first road contest of the season three days later when it travels to Huntsville, Texas, to face off with Sam Houston State (Nov. 10).

A brief, two-game homestand featuring McNeese (Nov. 14) and Southeastern Louisiana (Nov. 17) follows before Louisiana hits the road for two more games at New Orleans (Nov. 21) and Lamar (Nov. 25).

Xavier (New Orleans) comes to town on Dec. 2 ahead of another trip to The Lone Star State to meet up with North Texas on Dec. 7 in Denton. Louisiana’s premiere non-conference matchup will be on Dec. 16 when Mississippi State travels to Acadiana for a big-time showdown in the Cajundome.

The final two games of the non-conference slate will be played away from home with trips to Ole Miss (Dec. 20) and Jackson State (Dec. 29).
