RENO, NV – Six home games and a trip to a tournament hosted by Pac-12 member USC, highlights the 2019-20 Nevada women’s basketball non-conference schedule.

The Wolf Pack will open the 2019-20 campaign at home in Lawlor Events Center with a contest on Tuesday, Nov. 5 against Saint Mary’s, which won over 20 games and advanced to the second round of the WNIT last season. The game against the Gaels will be played as part of an evening doubleheader with the Wolf Pack men’s basketball team with a game time still to be determined.

Nevada will remain at home the following weekend to host Sacramento State on Saturday, Nov. 9.

The following weekend the team is back on the road to face last season’s Big Sky tournament champions Portland State on Nov. 23.

The annual Nugget Classic will be held on Friday, Nov. 29 and Sunday, Dec. 1 this year with Stephen F. Austin, a 25-win team a season ago, UC Santa Barbara and Chicago State all participating.
