GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNC Greensboro women’s basketball released its 2018-19 schedule today that features 13 home games during the upcoming season, including hosting two teams that made the NCAA Tournament last year.
“We are excited to announce our full schedule,” said Head Coach Trina Patterson. “We are a very unselfish and hard-working team. We are playing a demanding non-conference schedule and our team will embrace the challenges.
“It will be a learning curve playing teams like North Carolina, Seton Hall and Liberty. You learn about your team when playing these types of teams. You learn that you have to play defense, rebound and do the right things to win.”
