CEDAR FALLS – UNI women’s basketball has announced a 10-game non-conference schedule for the 2022-2023 season.
The Panthers will spend the majority of their non-conference schedule at home, including the first three weeks of November. UNI women’s basketball will make its first appearance away from the McLeod Center abroad in Mexico. There the Panthers will participate in the Cancun Challenge as a member of the Riviera Division against two other teams.
In the 2022-2023 non-conference schedule UNI will see seven opponents that they played in 2021-22. The Panthers open the season with an exhibition against a new opponent, Cornell College. The Rams are a member of the D3 Midwest Conference and are located in Grand View, Iowa. The teams will play each other for the first time in the two program’s history on November 1st.
During the Panthers five-game homestand to start the season, they will play games against St. Thomas, St. Louis, in-state foe Iowa State, and former MVC team Creighton. UNI played all four teams the prior season with a 2-2 record.
The Panthers will then depart for the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Cancun, Mexico over Thanksgiving Day weekend for the Cancun Challenge. This is UNI’s second appearance in the holiday tournament after participating in 2015. In Mexico, the Panthers will play games against Tulane and Vanderbilt in the Riviera Division.
UNI will then kick off the month of December with an away game against South Dakota State. The Panthers will then return home for a contest with North Dakota State at the McLeod Center. UNI will wrap up the non-conference season on the road with a game against reigning Big 10 Champions Iowa at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
