VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton athletic department has released the 2007-08 women's basketball non-conference schedule, which opens up on Nov. 10 at Portland State. The game against the Vikings, which is the first of 13 non-conference contests, marks the first time that the Bearcats travel to the West Coast during their Division I era.

Closer to home, the Bearcats have a pair of games against St. Bonaventure. The Bearcats travel to the Elmira BC Arena for a 3 p.m. game on Nov. 17 and host the Bonnies on Sat. Dec. 29 at 1 p.m at the Events Center. Former Bearcat standout Sarah Cartmill, who was the 2002 America East Conference Player of the Year, is currently an assistant coach for St. Bonaventure.

Another first time opponent for the Bearcats this season is Duquesne. The Bearcats travel to face the Dukes on Dec. 4 at 7 p.m.

In addition to St. Bonaventure, the Bearcats have home games against Bucknell (Nov. 28), La Salle (Dec. 1), Colgate (Dec. 16), Lehigh (Dec. 21) and Cornell (Jan. 7). Other road games are against Canisius (Nov. 20), Sacred Heart (Nov. 25), Liberty (Dec. 8) and Villanova (Dec. 13).

The America East Conference portion of the schedule will be released in September.
