NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The St. Bonaventure women's basketball team will host five teams that reached the national postseason a year ago as part of its 2019 Atlantic 10 home schedule, conference officials released Tuesday.
In all, the Bonnies will play eight home games during Atlantic 10 action, welcoming WNIT entrants Duquesne (Jan. 5), Saint Louis (Jan. 20), George Mason (Feb. 3) and Fordham (Feb. 16) along with 2018 NCAA Tournament squad Dayton on Jan. 16.
The Bonnies will also face off against Rhode Island (Feb. 21) on Senior Day at the Reilly Center as well as play La Salle (Feb. 27) in the first half of a doubleheader with the men's team.
St. Bonaventure's road dates have the Bonnies at George Mason (Jan. 10) and Saint Joseph's (Jan. 13) in back-to-back games as well as consecutive games at UMass (Jan. 26) and Rhode Island (Jan. 30) along with Davidson (Feb. 9) and Richmond (Feb. 13).
The Brown and White also plays on the road at defending conference champion George Washington (Feb. 24) and finishes the regular season at rival Duquesne (March 2).
Again this season, the first round of the Atlantic 10 Tournament will be held at on-campus sites on Tuesday, March 5 before the conference tournament shifts to Pittsburgh March 8-10.
