Bahamas trip included in schedule for SDSU women’s basketball – The San Diego Union-Tribune

Posted: August 10, 2017 at 6:32 am

The San Diego State womens basketball team went to Seton Hall and South Orange, N.J., for a winter basketball tournament last season.

This season, the locale will be quite a bit more exotic.

The Aztecs non-conference schedule was announced on Wednesday, and four games into the 2017-18 season, the Aztecs will travel to Bimini, Bahamas, for the Junkaroo Jam. Theyll open the tournament against Central Michigan on Nov. 24, and then play either Tulane or Iowa State.

Upon returning from the Bahamas, the Aztecs will face off against crosstown rival University of San Diego on Nov. 29. The Toreros took the matchup handily last year, winning 91-53.

Another highlight on the slate is a trip to Tuscon, Ariz., to play Pac-12 opponent Arizona on Dec. 3. The Wildcats are coming off a 14-16 season under first-year head coach Adia Barnes.

Including an exhibition game against Cal State Los Angeles that begins the season on Nov. 3, the Aztecs will play 12 contests before they open Mountain West play at home against Wyoming on Dec. 28.

SDSUs non-conference home games include Cal State Northridge (Nov. 14), Cal State Fullerton (Nov. 18), UC Irvine (Dec. 8) and Santa Clara (Dec. 14).

As San Diego State coach Stacie Terry enters her fifth season, the Aztecs are coming off a 2016-17 campaign in which they notched a second straight 6-12 record in the Mountain West, while being 11-19 overall.

They return nine letter winners, including four starters. Junior McKynzie Fort, a first-team All-Mountain West player last season, is back after averaging 15.9 points per game to rank second in the conference.
