The 2010-11 women’s basketball schedule was released today by Athletic Director and coach, Rich Renzema. “I am really excited about this season’s schedule,” said Renzema. “I am most excited about it because of the squad we have assembled this year. The schedule is challenging with some great travel but it’s the players that will make it special. We have brought in quite a few players that will contribute right away. We still return a good experienced core group but I feel the help they needed has arrived.”
The Lady Tigers will travel to seven different states this season to complete the schedule. There are three tournaments on the schedule starting with the Ohio Christian Classic in Circleville, OH. The Tigers will play OCU in their first game of the year in the tournament. OCU was the NCCAA II national runner-up. The Super 8 Classic is held in Grayson, KY and always has some of the top teams in the country including last years national champion, Kentucky Christian University. Grace will host it’s annual Christmas Tournament in mid December.
In all, the Lady Tigers will travel to Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Indiana, and Iowa. A few of these states will be visited more than once this year. Only nine games will be played at home in the Aldrich Athletic Center. One of those games will be Kuyper College in the 4th annual “Cross-town Rival Game” slated for December 7th. The winner of this game receives the coveted Cross Cup for the year.
The NCCAA Regional will be held in Lincoln, IL and the NCCAA National Tournament will take place in Circleville, OH. The ACCA National Tournament will be held in Joppa, MO.
