University of Virginia Media Release

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Atlantic Coast Conference released the 2017-18 women's basketball schedules for its member institutions on Thursday (Sept. 14). Virginia will play 29 regular-season games, including 16 contests at John Paul Jones Arena.

ACC Schedule

Virginia will face each of its 14 conference opponents during the 16-game league schedule. The Cavaliers will play six opponents solely at home (Pitt, Syracuse, Clemson, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Miami), six only on the road (NC State, Boston College, Duke, Georgia Tech, Florida State and Wake Forest) and two opponents, Virginia Tech and Louisville, in home-and-away series. The ACC women’s basketball tournament returns to the Greensboro Coliseum, taking place Feb. 28 through March 4.

Non-Conference Highlights

The Cavaliers’ home slate begins on Sunday, Nov. 12 against Central Connecticut State. Virginia opens its season on Nov. 10 at Mississippi State, a team that is coming off a historic run to the national championship game in the program's first Final Four appearance. The Cavaliers will be hosting the reigning Big Ten champion, Maryland, in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Nov. 29. The annual Cavalier Classic Tournament will take place this year over Thanksgiving Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 25-26, and will feature North Carolina A&T, Duquesne and Harvard.

Television Exposure

The schedule features six regular-season games that will be televised, including an ESPN2 game on Sunday, Jan. 14 game at Duke. Virginia’s home games against Virginia Tech, Louisville and Miami as well as the road contest at Wake Forest are all set to air the ACC Regional Sports Networks. At least 19 additional contests will be available on ACC Network Extra.

Team Highlights

Virginia returns 10 letterwinners from last year’s team that finished with 20 wins. The Cavaliers have four starters back, including All-ACC Freshman Team selections Jocelyn Willoughby (East Orange, N.J.) and Dominique Toussaint (Staten Island, N.Y.). Willoughby led UVA in rebounding (6.2 per game) and will be the top-returning scorer after averaging 9.8 points per contest a year ago. The Cavaliers will also have some new faces on the team including Brianna Tinsley (Madison, Va.), who graduated from Charlottesville’s Saint Anne’s-Belfield, and Amandine Toi (Paris, France), who competed this summer at the U19 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup as a member of the French Junior National Team.
