The Creighton women’s basketball program released a non-conference schedule that features five teams that played in the NCAA Tournament this past season, including three that made it to the Sweet 16.
The Jays host Northern Iowa, pay a visit to Drake and will face UCLA and Washington at a tournament In Las Vegas. Creighton will host Florida State on December 21. The Seminoles made it to the Elite Eight last season before falling to eventual national champion South Carolina.
“Five of our last six non-conference opponents were in the top 45 of the RPI last year so that stretch is going to be really difficult”, said Creighton coach Jim Flanery. “But we do have enough experience that I feel like we will be competitive.”
The Bluejays get things going with their lone exhibition contest against Northern State on Nov. 1, then open the regular season at home against Wichita State on Nov. 10.
