Men's Basketball: Gophers announce non-conference schedule

"The Big Ten is one of the premiere women's basketball conferences in the country, so we know the competition is always top-notch", said Gary Barta, UI director of athletics.

As a result, each Big Ten team will play two conference games in early December. Two days later, Northwestern will face defending conference champion Purdue on the road while IL hosts Maryland. Both schools have supported a Big Ten measure to create protected rivalries, which would guarantee the teams play twice per season in future years.

With opening night nine days away for the IU volleyball team, the Big Ten Conference has released its preseason rankings.

Iowa's 16-game conference slate includes six weekend home contests, including two on Saturdays (Purdue on January 13 and IN on February 24) and four on Sundays (Michigan on December 31, Nebraska on January 28, Minnesota on February 4, and Wisconsin on February 18).

UW hasn't finished a season below fourth place in the Big Ten since 2001, but that streak will be tested this season.

The Lady Lions will close Big Ten play at home for the fourth time in the last five seasons (at in, 2016). A home date with Minnesota on Jan. 10 is sandwiched between road trips to Rutgers (Jan. 6) and Wisconsin (Jan. 14).

As a program, the Lady Lions own eight regular season and two Big Ten Tournament championships. All 14 teams will advance to the tournament, with two first-round games slated for Wednesday, Feb. 28.

With a trip to Lincoln, Nebraska, Penn State has now traveled to play Nebraska in five of the six seasons that Nebraska has been a member of the Big Ten.

On the other hand, the schedule gets much easier from there, with favorable home-and-homes against Illinois, Ohio State and Nebraska. Available season tickets range in price from $95 (baseline) to $120 (sideline) and $260 (courtside).
