Atlantic 10 Announces 2014-15 Women's Basketball Schedule Pairings
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - The Atlantic 10 Conference announced Monday its pairings for its 2014-2015 Women's Basketball Schedule.
The league's 14 members will play a 16-game conference schedule in the upcoming season, which allows teams to face each opponent once and three teams twice. The complete 2014-15 Conference schedule with dates and times will be announced at a later date.
One year after a one-point loss in the 2013Atlantic 10 women's championship game, Fordham beat top-seeded Dayton 63-51 to win the 2014 A-10 title in Richmond, Va.
The Rams were joined in the 2014 NCAA Tournament by UD and Saint Joseph’s. The Hawks knocked off Georgia in first-round play, before falling to eventual National Champion UConn in round two. Duquesne, George Washington, St. Bonaventure and VCU were all selected to take part in the 2014 WNIT, with GW advancing to the third round of play.
The A-10 has now seen at least 50 percent of its membership participate in postseason play in five of the last six seasons. The A-10 has earned three NCAA Tournament bids in six of the last nine years and 17 times overall. The league has also had at least seven of its teams advance to postseason play in each of the last five years.
The Conference also had seven teams with 20 or more wins for the first time since the 2010-11 and its members combined for its highest winning percentage in non-conference play since the 2002-03 season.
The 2015 Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball Championship will be played March 4-8, 2015 at the Richmond Coliseum.
