- The University of New Hampshire athletic department has announced the schedule for the 2007-08 women’s basketball season. “I am very excited for the 2007-08 season,” Head Coach Kristin Cole said. “We have a good non-conference schedule that will help us to prepare for the America East conference.”
    The Wildcats open up the 2007-08 season at home, hosting Central Connecticut (Nov. 13). The New Hampshire women’s basketball team will travel south to take part in the South Florida Classic, playing host school South Florida (Nov. 17) and the University of Tennessee-Martin (Nov. 18), both of which the Wildcats have never faced. The squad will return home to play St. Peter's (Nov. 24), finishing up the month of November with a trip to Boston College (Nov. 27).
    Head Coach Kristin Cole and her Wildcats have a three-game home stand, facing Colgate (Dec. 1), Army (Dec. 4) and Harvard (Dec. 8) to open up December action. The Wildcats then travel to Iona (Dec. 12), hoping to repeat a solid victory against the Gaels. Other non-conference opponents include road trips to Northeastern (Dec. 15), Providence (Dec. 28) and intrastate rival Dartmouth (Jan. 9).
    New Hampshire will start conference play at home against Albany on Jan. 5. The Wildcats look to seek revenge after the Great Danes defeated UNH in the play-in game of the America East Tournament last season. The Wildcats will then play host to the 2007 Regular Season Champions, Hartford on Jan. 16.  In the first conference road game of the season, the Wildcats travel to Binghamton on Jan. 19 to face the Bearcats. New Hampshire played well against the Bearcats last season, including a 58-55 overtime victory last season. The Wildcats stay on the road with a trip to Vermont on Dec. 23 to play the Catamounts. The Wildcats look to repeat last year’s home victories over the Terriers and the Black Bears, as they will host Boston University (Jan. 26) and Maine (Jan. 30) at Lundholm. The Wildcats travel to Maryland on Feb. 2 to face the UMBC Retrievers before returning home to host Stony Brook on Feb. 6 to finish up the first round of conference play. New Hampshire will travel to Albany, Hartford, Boston University, Maine and Stony Brook and will host Vermont, UMBC and Binghamton in the second round of conference games.
    The America East Championship will begin on Mar. 13. The 2008 Championship will be hosted by the University of Hartford, with all games taking place at Chase Arena in Connecticut.
