    2012-13 Schedule

    CARBONDALE, Ill.-- Southern Illinois women's basketball coach Missy Tiber announced the Salukis' 2012-13 non-conference schedule Friday.

    Southern will play two exhibitions and 11 non-conference games in preparation for their Missouri Valley Conference slate. The non-conference schedule is highlighted by four home games, an appearance in the Miami Tournament Nov. 23-24 in Coral Gables, Fla., and a trip to Colombia, Mo., Dec. 16, to take on new Southeastern Conference member Missouri.

    "We are excited about the diversity of teams we are playing this season," Tiber said. "We will certainly be tested by Missouri and at the Miami Tournament, but these will be good challenges for us."

    The Salukis open 2012-13 by hosting exhibition games against NAIA member Central Methodist (Nov. 2) and Division II Missouri-St. Louis (Nov. 6). The regular season begins with a home game Nov. 13 against Central Arkansas before the Salukis head to Chicago Nov. 17 to take on Loyola.

    The schedule for the Miami Tournament has not yet been released, but the tournament field contains the host Hurricanes as well as Radford and Florida Atlantic. Southern will play two games in the tournament. After returning from Florida, SIU hosts IPFW Nov. 29 before traveling to Murray State Dec. 1.

    The Salukis host consecutive home games against regional rival Southeast Missouri State (Dec. 5) and Marshall (Dec. 8) before ending the non-conference schedule with three consecutive road games. After taking on Missouri, Southern travels to Edwardsville, Ill., to take on SIUE Dec. 21 before heading back to Chicago Dec. 29 to face Chicago State.
