Lady 'Backs release 2012-13 basketball schedule

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The University of Arkansas women’s basketball team faces 11 teams who participated in the postseason a year ago in this year’s 2012-13 schedule released today.

Head coach Tom Collen and the Razorbacks face the always tough and recently expanded Southeastern Conference maintaining a 16-game league schedule this season.  Arkansas adds in trips to Tulsa, Okla.; Honolulu, Hawai’i; and Furman, S.C., this year as well.

“I’m really excited about our schedule this season,” Collen said.  “We will make short trips to Tulsa twice to play Oral Roberts and the University of Tulsa. These renewed regional rivalries give our fans an opportunity to travel a short distance and watch us play.  Playing Missouri twice every year gives us a chance to begin a great regional rivalry and of course our home game early in the season with Texas A&M will draw a lot of attention.”

Arkansas, who returns senior starter Sarah Watkins, sophomore point guard Calli Berna and juniors Kiera Peak and Dominique Robinson, opens the regular season hosting Elementary Day Nov. 9 against Jackson State at 11 a.m.

The Razorbacks then hit the road for five consecutive away games to start the year.  The road stretch begins at Tulsa Nov. 15, and then at Oral Roberts Nov. 19, before the team departs for Honolulu, Hawai’i, where they face the host Rainbow Wahine, Oklahoma and Oregon.   ORU was a WNIT participant last year while the Sooners reached the NCAA second round.

“The players are obviously excited about our trip to Hawai’i,” Collen said. “We will have three great games there with the host school, Pac 10 opponent Oregon and national powerhouse Oklahoma.”

Arkansas follows up hosting seven of the next eight heading into SEC play.  The Razorbacks welcome Texas Southern Nov. 29, Pepperdine Dec. 2 and Kansas Dec. 6.  The Jayhawks reached the NCAA Regionals a year ago.
