USC Upstate Announces 2018-19 Women’s Basketball Non-Conference Schedule

Spartanburg, S.C. – USC Upstate women's basketball head coach Tammy George has announced today that the Spartans will play a total of 11 non-conference games for the upcoming 2018-19 season.

USC Upstate opens the season with two of its first three games on the road at Power 5 schools. The Spartans tipoff the year on Nov. 6 with a road trip to Virginia Tech and follow three days later on Nov. 9 at Nebraska-Omaha. USC Upstate concludes its season-opening three-game road trip on Nov. 11 at Nebraska.

"We are excited about the season and will be challenged early on as we open up on the road at Virginia Tech," said George. "There are several road games against some familiar regional opponents that we must come prepared to compete each time out. We feel our non-conference schedule will help prepare us for the Big South Conference."

The Spartans begin the home portion of their schedule on Nov. 13 with a showdown against Converse before hitting the road for four straight starting on Nov. 17 at Furman. USC Upstate then travels to North Carolina Central (Nov. 24), South Carolina State (Nov. 28) and Western Carolina (Dec. 4).

The Spartans will play two of their final three non-conference games at home beginning with Bob Jones on Dec. 8. Following a road game at East Carolina on Dec. 16, USC Upstate concludes its non-conference schedule at home versus Brevard on Dec. 18.
