LAWTON – There will be no easy contests for the Cameron women’s basketball team with the announcement of their 2015-16 schedule on Thursday. The Aggies will play their entire slate against NCAA Division II programs with 12 home contests, and seven contests against teams who qualified for last season’s national tournament.
“This is the toughest schedule that we have had since I been here,” said head coach Tom Webb. “It’s without a doubt the toughest schedule in our region and probably one of the toughest in the nation. We open at home with Harding who will start the season top-10 in the nation and we’ll go to Emporia State who won their regional and will be ranked as well.”
“We wanted to challenge our group this season by playing experienced teams and build off of our NCAA Tournament berth.”
Cameron will open their season at home for the first time in four years on Friday, Nov. 13 against Harding. The contest will be played in the early afternoon in front of local schools in the area; an exact time will be announced at a later date. East Central will come into town on the next evening at 6 p.m. before the Ags go on road to face Emporia State, a team who reached the Elite Eight last season on Nov. 17. For the second year in the row, CU will visit West Texas A&M for their Thanksgiving Tournament to play Texas A&M-International and Minnesota State-Moorehead.
