Women's Basketball Releases 2014-15 Schedule

BOSTON, Mass.—UMass Boston will look for their fourth winning season in five years when they open their 2014-15 campaign November 15 at Colby College.

Sixth-year head coach Courtney Mattingly's squad will play 13 contests in front of their fans at the Clark Athletic Center Gymnasium and will play a difficult non-conference schedule that includes MASCAC Champion Bridgewater State and perennial powers Brandeis University and Suffolk University.

The Beacons will open the year with a six-game road trip that begins November 15 in Maine against Colby College. From there, the Beacons will take part in the two-day Salem State Tournament the following weekend, before finishing off the month with Fitchburg State University on Nov. 25. 

UMass Boston will finish off their six-game road trip on Saturday December 6, when the Beacons begin Little East Conference against Keene State College. The Keene State game also marks the end of the Beacons' season-opening road trip, as UMass Boston will play seven of their next eight games at home and finish the season playing 13 of their final 19 games in front of their home fans.

Mattingly's side will play their next six games at home starting on December 9 when the Beacons host Simmons College in their home opener. UMass Boston will close out fall semester with two more home contests, as they host Westfield State University on Dec. 11 and then play reigning Little East Conference Champion Rhode Island College on Dec. 13.

After a three-week break, the Beacons will begin second semester with home non-conference tilts against Salve Regina (Jan. 3) and Brandeis University (Jan. 6).  The Beacons will close out non-conference play with two more home games, as they will face-off against Bridgewater State University (Jan. 15) and Suffolk University (Feb. 3).

In Little East conference play, UMass Boston will play all seven teams twice, with one game on the road and one contest in Boston.

UMass Boston will finish the regular season Saturday February 21 when they host Western Connecticut State University on Senior Day.
