Women’s Basketball Releases 2017–18 Schedule

The Illinois Tech Women’s Basketball team has released its 2017–18 schedule. It features 11 home games, a trip to Puerto Rico, and a five-game homestand to end the regular season.

“I am very excited about our schedule this season,” said Head Coach Usha Gilmore. “We should be very competitive this year with a strong core of upperclassmen and the addition of a couple of talented newcomers. We are also looking forward to playing in the Christmas tournament being held in Puerto Rico.”

The trip to the Caribbean, which will take place on December 17, is one of the schedule’s main highlights. The mid-December trip is the only one the Scarlet Hawks will take over the entire month, as December features home contests against North Central-Minnesota (December 1), Carroll University (December 12), and Aurora University (December 13).

Illinois Tech’s season opens facing three future Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference opponents. On Wednesday, November 15, the 2017-18 season will begin at Edgewood College with a 6p.m. tip-off. After a trip to Lakeland College on November 18, the Scarlet Hawks open the home schedule on Tuesday, November 21 at 7 p.m. against Milwaukee School of Engineering. A home contest against the University of Dallas (November 25) and a road tilt with another NACC foe, Dominican University (November 29,) close out the opening month.
