Complete 2016-17 schedule announced

Stanford Women's Basketball announced its complete 2016-17 schedule today.

The Cardinal is scheduled for 30 regular-season games. 22 of them will be televised — 16 on the Pac-12 Networks, two on ESPN2 and one on SEC

In conference play, Stanford plays Washington and Washington State only away and USC and UCLA only at home. It plays the other seven Pac-12 teams both at home and away. As has been the case since the Pac-10 became the Pac=12, traditional rivals meet twice in a single week. Stanford and Cal play each other in the next-to-last week of the season.

This is the schedule from the FBC. Game information includes links to each opponent's women's basketball website and maps of the venues. Links to other media coverage (radio and live stats) and FBC pre-game and post-game events will be added as soon as the information is available.

This is the announcement and the schedule from Stanford Athletics.

2016-17 nonconference schedule announced

The 2016-17 nonconference schedule has been announced. The season begins with four home games before the Cardinal travels to Mexico for the Cancun Challenge Thanksgiving tournament. The Cardinal plays two teams that made it to the Elite Eight last season — Texas at home and Tennessee in Knoxville.

This is the announcement from Stanford Athletics. Tip times and broadcast information along with Stanford’s Pac-12 schedule will be announced later once television arrangements have been finalized. In this year’s rotation, Washington and Washington State don't visit Maples Pavilion and Stanford misses its regular-season trip to USC and UCLA.

This is the schedule from the FBC. Game information includes links to each opponent's women's basketball website and maps of the venues.

Pac-12 games, links to media coverage (TV, live streams, radio, live stats) and FBC pre-game and post-game events will be added as soon as the information is available.
