ORLANDO, Fla. ( – Fourteen home games highlight the 2017-18 UCF women's basketball schedule, which was announced on Wednesday.
As UCF gears up for its fifth season as a member of the American Athletic Conference -- one of the nation's premier women's basketball leagues -- the Knights are slated to face 12 programs who advanced to the NCAA or WNIT Tournaments a year ago.
"We are very excited for the 2017-18 schedule," head coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson said. "Our team had a successful season last year and is very excited about what is to come this year. Our schedule will be a challenge with many teams who made postseason appearances last year. We are working hard to represent Knight Nation and are looking foward to the season." 
UCF tips off the season Nov. 10, in a campaign-opening doubleheader with the men's team. Both programs will host Mercer in CFE Arena.
The Knights hit the road for three games, heading to Chattanooga (Nov. 13), Gardner-Webb (Nov. 17) and Virginia Tech (Nov. 19).
UCF returns to CFE Arena on Nov. 22 to host Elon. The Knights will spend their holiday weekend hosting the UCF Thanksgiving Classic for the third straight season. Northern Iowa, Wyoming and IUPUI will make the trip to Orlando for the two-day tournament.

ESPNU will air the Jan. 14 matchup at USF, while the Feb. 18 contest against the Bulls will broadcast on CBS Sports Network. The American Digital Network will produce and distribute seven of UCF's games this season.
