DeVille releases 2017-18 Beaver Women's Basketball schedule

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- Bemidji State University women’s basketball Head Coach Chelsea DeVille released the 2017-18 schedule Tuesday. BSU begins the season with four non-conference contests, including a trip to Denver, Colo., over Thanksgiving break, and closes with a 22-game stretch of Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference games.

BSU hosts Valley City State University (Nov. 11) to begin the season followed by another home contest against Mayville State University (Nov. 18). Bemidji State then travels to face Metro State University (Nov. 24) and Colorado Christian College (Nov. 25) at the Auraria Event Center in Denver, Colo.

The 2017-18 NSIC schedule mirrors last season’s order of games, with the exception of two games against University of Minnesota Crookston.  Bemidji State will flip the home/road games from 2016-17, though, and begin the conference schedule at 6:00 p.m. Dec. 1 at home against University of Minnesota Duluth (Dec. 1) and St. Cloud State University (Dec. 2). After traveling to Northern State University (Dec. 8) and Minnesota State University Moorhead (Dec. 9), BSU will finish the calendar year at home against Minnesota Crookston (Dec. 16), Upper Iowa University (Dec. 30) and Winona State University (Dec. 31).

BSU will play just two home games during the month of January against Minot State University (Jan. 19) and University of Mary (Jan. 20). Bemidji State will then play four of six games during the month of February at BSU Gymnasium against Wayne State College (Feb. 2), Augustana University (Feb. 3), MSU Moorhead (Feb. 9) and Northern State (Feb. 10). BSU finishes the regular season on the road Feb. 16-17 at U-Mary and Minot State, respectively.

The top four teams of each NSIC division will host the first round of the conference tournament on their home courts before the NSIC Tournament moves to Sioux Falls, S.D., for the quarterfinal through finals matchups.
