Big East announces repeat opponents for 2012-13

big-east-logo-100hThe Big East released the women’s basketball repeat schedule of league teams as well as home and away schedule for its 15 members.

The regular-season format is a 16-game schedule. Each team plays 16 conference games. They will host six opponents at home and play at six opponents with two repeat opponents where both a home and away game will be played. Each team has a total of eight home and eight away games. According to the league, the rationale in determining the repeat opponents is to provide additional quality television inventory, for competitive issues/RPI implications as well as geographic rivalries/minimizing travel costs.

“We are coming off a great season that showcased the continued growth and depth of our conference,” said Danielle Donehew, Big East Associate Commissioner for Women’s Basketball. “The continued use of the 16-game schedule model allows us to display the impressive play throughout the conference. The second repeat opponent will help balance the competitive fairness within the league, while creating exciting matchups for television.”
