SAN DIEGO, Calif. - University of San Diego women's basketball head coach Cindy Fisher has released the schedule for the 2013-2014 season, which is highlighted by six postseason teams from a year ago.
The Toreros schedule features 15 home games as they try to build off last season's postseason success.

The Toreros road schedule features a pair of WNIT second round teams in Northern Colorado (Nov. 9) and San Diego State (Nov. 18).
"We have put together another extremely competitive non conference schedule to prepare us for West Coast Conference play," stated Fisher. "We are starting out with a very strong Northern Colorado team in Greeley, Colo. and return home for our home opener against PAC 12 opponent Arizona State. We have a very challenging November, playing at San Diego State and at San Jose State before we come back to the Jenny Craig to finish off November with three home games. December will be a great mix of home and away games to prepare us for WCC play. "
