    I noticed that the non-league schedule has been posted. I never saw it mentioned on the @XavierWBB Twitter account. Hard to imagine that happening on the men's side. Info below. Home games bold.

    Nov. 21, at Wake Forest (14-17, 5-11 ACC)
    Nov. 29, Bowling Green (11-19, 3-15 MAC)
    Dec. 2, North Alabama (24-5 last season in NCAA Division II; transitioning to Division I this year)

    Dec. 16, at Cincinnati (19-13, 10-6 AAC, WNIT first round)

    Unlike last year, there are a lot of games back-to-back (i.e. within one day) with a MBB game. I approve of that.

    Non conference schedule is a joke. 2 teams with winning record and one was D-2 last year. This is acceptable? I maintain my belief that had Mack not left, Neal would have been gone. No school wants to replace both of their head coaches in the same sport in same year.

    Neal got himself another year thanks to Mack.

    In all fairness, is there really anything to talk about in regards to this schedule? I know the Big East is good (#6 in RPI last year), but this schedule is bad. Embarrassingly bad.

    This schedule has the appearance of, "I am going to get some wins next year so I can save my job."
