Binghamton women's basketball team opens up season at North Texas on Nov. 19

VESTAL, N.Y.--The Binghamton University women's basketball team has released its nine-game non-conference schedule which has the team opening up its 2004-05 season against North Texas, a squad it defeated 59-57 in the championship game of last season's Binghamton/Time Warner Classic. The Bearcats will square off against the Lady Eagles on Friday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. EST.

The field in this season's Binghamton/ Time Warner Classic, which will be held Nov. 27-28 at the Events Center, includes Marshall, Robert Morris and Brown. In the opening round, the Bearcats will square off against Marshall while Robert Morris will meet Brown.

For the second straight season, Binghamton faces Big East Conference opponents Syracuse and St. John's. The Orangewomen, who beat the Bearcats 66-59 in the 2003-04 season opener, will host this year's matchup on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. Binghamton then hosts St. John's on Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. in a rematch of last season's dramatic 84-81 Bearcat victory.

Binghamton faces Lehigh for the fifth consecutive season as it travels to Bethlehem, Pa. on Dec. 18 for a 7 p.m. game. For the third time in four season, the Bearcats face Cornell with this season's matchup taking place in the Events Center on Jan. 10 at 7 p.m.

A pair of first-time opponents round out the non-conference schedule. Binghamton travels to La Salle on Dec. 11 for a 1 p.m. game and hosts Harvard on Dec. 30 at 7 p.m.

“There is no easy non-conference game on our schedule,” Conover said. “We won very close games over St. John’s and North Texas last season and adding La Salle and Harvard to our schedule makes it very challenging. Last year, we also had a tough early schedule but we were able to do better than we expected (5-4).”

The remainder of Binghamton's 2004-05 schedule, including preseason games and the entire 18-game America East Conference slate, will be released when finalized later this month.

Season tickets are currently on sale (607-777-SLAM).
