TALLAHASSEE, FLa. (Seminoles.com) — Florida State Women’s Basketball has announced its non-conference schedule for the 2022-23 season. The slate includes 13 games against several challenging opponents including UConn, Wisconsin and Florida.
Under the guidance of new head coach and standout Alumna Brooke Wyckoff, the Seminoles make their regular-season debut on Monday, Nov. 7, in a special 11 a.m. start time against Bethune-Cookman at the Donald L. Tucker Center. The matchup tips off a six-game non-conference home schedule.
“We’re looking forward to a challenging non-conference schedule,” Wyckoff said. “There’s no better way to prepare for ACC play than by playing several talented teams outside of the conference. Our team and our staff are ready to put in the work.”
