2006-07 Cal Schedule Announced

Aug. 2, 2006

BERKELEY, Calif. - The California women's basketball team's 2006-07 schedule features 10 teams that competed in the 2006 NCAA Tournament and three WNIT selections. Last season, the Golden Bears posted an 18-12 record and earned their first NCAA Tournament bid since 1993.

Cal prepares for its Nov. 12 season opener at Saint Mary's with home exhibition games against the Australian national team Oct. 31 and Love and Basketball Nov. 5.

The Bears play their first five regular-season games on the road. After the contest in Moraga, Cal travels to the Pepperdine Tournament Nov. 17-18. The entire field consists of 2006 NCAA Tournament teams, as Pepperdine, Florida and Rutgers round out the group.

Cal's non-conference slate doesn't get any easier, as the Bears spend Thanksgiving Weekend at the Nov. 24-25 Vanderbilt Tournament, which includes Belmont and NCAA qualifiers Vanderbilt and Florida Atlantic.

After traveling most of November, Cal has its home opener Dec. 2 against Harvard on the opening day of the third-annual Contra Costa Times Classic. The tournament, which includes San Jose State and Arkansas State, wraps up Dec. 3. Cal then faces two WNIT participants - Fresno State Dec. 7 at home and Kansas Dec. 10 on the road.

Cal, which finished last season sixth in the Pac-10 with a 10-8 mark, opens conference play at UCLA Dec. 20 and at USC Dec. 22. The Bears close out 2006 as host to Arizona Dec. 28 and Arizona State Dec. 30 and ring in 2007 against non-conference opponent Rhode Island Jan. 2. The regular season wraps up Feb. 24 against UCLA in Berkeley.

Stanford, USC, UCLA, Arizona State and Washington joined Cal as Pac-10 representatives at the 2006 NCAA Tournament. The sixth-annual Pac-10 Tournament will be staged March 2-5 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.
