OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA/Ole Miss Athletics) - Ole Miss women’s basketball has unveiled both its non-conference schedule and SEC home/away assignments for the upcoming 2018-19 season, head coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin announced on Tuesday.

“I am excited about the opportunity to compete against quality opponents in each game,” McPhee-McCuin said. “I definitely think the trip to the Virgin Islands over Thanksgiving break will allow us to bond as a team and spend some time with each other away from our normal surroundings. This non-conference schedule will give my staff and I an opportunity to try and figure out how we can put our team in the best position to be competitive in conference play. It’s refreshing to have so many games at The Pavilion, which also gives the Oxford community a great chance to come out and support these student-athletes.”

Ole Miss opens with an exhibition against Division II LeMoyne-Owen at The Pavilion on Nov. 2, followed by the regular season opener vs. Norfolk State on Nov. 6. Three more home games vs. IUPUI (Nov. 9), Temple (Nov. 14) and Western Michigan (Nov. 18) preface a trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands for the 2018 Paradise Jam. There, the Rebels will square off against UConn (Nov. 22), Purdue (Nov. 23) and St. John’s (Nov. 24).

The Rebels return for another four-game homestand, which starts with a home contest with TCU on Nov. 29 as part of the 2018 SEC/Big 12 Challenge. Afterward, Ole Miss plays host to Jacksonville State (Dec. 2), Savannah State (Dec. 8) and Louisiana (Dec. 12) before a road trip to Louisiana Tech on Dec. 15. The Rebels conclude the non-conference season with two more home contests vs. Troy (Dec. 19) and North Florida (Dec. 28).

Ole Miss also released its home/away assignments for the upcoming SEC season on Tuesday. Coming to The Pavilion this season are Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt, while the Rebels will travel to Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Vanderbilt.

Season tickets for the 2018-19 season are now on sale. Dates, times and TV assignments for both the non-conference and SEC seasons will be announced at a later date.
