The women’s basketball team announced its full 2012-13 schedule today, unveiling a challenging lineup that pits the Colonials against 13 teams that reached postseason play last season, two more than GW faced last year.

Six of those teams come in non conference competition, including hosting District-rival Georgetown Dec. 1, and seven are Atlantic 10 rivals.

“This is a very challenging schedule with so many teams that experienced great success last season,” first-year head coach Jonathan Tsipis said in a release. ”These difficult non-conference games, with marquee matchups against teams from the Big East, Pac-12, ACC and SEC, will prepare us for the rigors of the Atlantic 10 schedule, and I know our fans will be excited to see our team play such quality opponents.”

GW will begin its season with an exhibition match against Wingate Nov. 4 and begin official competition when they host UT Arlington Nov. 9.
