Womens Basketball Schedule Released

The womens basketball schedule has been released.  While apparently not yet up on the official site, the team was at a Sparks game this week passing out copies of their schedule to the fans, in an on-going attempt to increase fan support between the UCLA womens basketball and LA Sparks crowd.  Schedule and thoughts after the jump.

The biggest non-conference game is @Notre Dame, a 2 seed last year in the NCAA tournament.  SDSU, Temple, and LSU finished last season ranked in the top 50 RPI.  This really is a favorable non-conference schedule.  UCLA only leaves California to play Notre Dame and a tournament in Hawaii.  It shouldn't be unreasonable to expect UCLA to get past the non-conference phase with only 1 loss at most, but as we saw last season UCLA had some growing pains early on before really catching fire during the pac-10 season.  I'm not too sure how these teams will be this season, but based off of last season's performances, LSU and Temple may be the two top non-conference home games to try and catch this year.

Interestingly, I see there is no Big XII team on the schedule, which means that the Pac-10/Big XII challenge has maybe come to an end.  UCLA had played Kansas and Texas Tech the last two seasons and I thought it was a great part of the schedule for UCLA to have, it's a shame not to see it anymore.

As we get closer to the season, i will post a season preview.
