NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The St. Bonaventure University women's basketball team's 2020-21 schedule is starting to take shape with the release of the 2020-21 Atlantic 10 schedule.
This season the Atlantic 10 will move from a 16-game conference schedule to an 18-game slate, using a primarily Friday/Sunday format for women's basketball only.
The Bonnies' 2020-21 Atlantic 10 schedule is highlighted by home-and-home contests with Duquesne, Dayton, Saint Louis, La Salle and Saint Joseph's.

The Brown and White then return home for their first home contest of 2021 when Richmond visits the Reilly Center Jan. 8 to start a four-game homestand. After hosting the Spiders, the Bonnies welcome the A-10 preseason favorite VCU Jan. 10 while then playing host to La Salle (Jan. 15) and Saint Joseph's (Jan. 17).
