Mean Green Women's Basketball Releases Conference Schedule
Conference Schedule Format Changes From Previous Seasons
DENTON -- The North Texas women's basketball team's 2017-18 Conference USA schedule has been released.
The 16-game schedule is two fewer than last year's and no longer features travel partners. The games will be played between Wednesdays and Sundays and includes two doubleheaders at the Super Pit with the Mean Green men's basketball team.

North Texas will open its conference schedule on Jan. 3 at Louisiana Tech but will play five of its first eight games at home, including three in a row from Jan. 5 through Jan. 13. The Mean Green will play UAB, Old Dominion and Rice twice. They owned a 4-2 record last season versus those teams.
The conference schedule and regular season will conclude on March 3 when North Texas travels to Rice. Last season at Tudor Fieldhouse, the Mean Green had a 17-point second-half come from behind win against Rice.
North Texas' senior day will fall on March 1 when they host UAB.
The Mean Green won a program-best eight C-USA games last season and in February won five consecutive conference games for the first time since 2013. During that stretch they won three conference games in a row -- the longest streak since 2002.
North Texas will open the year on Nov. 4 in an exhibition game versus Texas Woman's University at home in the Super Pit.
All game times will be determined at a later date.
The 2018 C-USA Men and Women's Basketball Tournament will be played in Frisco at the Dallas Cowboys' 12,000-seat Ford Center at The Star following the conclusion of the season.
