“There are absolutely no easy nights this year,” said head coach DeUnna Hendrix. “We purposely put together a tough non-conference schedule to prepare us for very competitive Big South play. We will rely heavily on our experience and leadership from last year’s run while we are battle tested nigh in and night out.”

The first Big South Conference game of the season will be played against Longwood on Dec. 2 at the Millis Center. HPU will also host Presbyterian College on Dec. 6 in league play. Big South action kicks in to high gear after the new year with a Jan. 3 game at Liberty. High Point will host Winthrop on Jan. 10 in a rematch of last year’s Big South title game.

For the third year the Big South Conference Tournament will be held at the campus of Coastal Carolina in Conway, S.C. The women’s first round games will be held March 3, followed by quarterfinals on March 5, semifinals on March 7 and the championship game on March 8. The winner will receive the league’s automatic big to the NCAA Tournament.
