EL PASO, Texas – UTEP women’s basketball will play a Conference USA schedule featuring 20 games in the 2022-23 season, head coach Kevin Baker announced on Tuesday.
The 11-team league will see each team play each other twice as part of a new-look conference slate.
“Conference USA seems to get stronger and stronger each season,” Baker said. “This season may be one of the best collections of teams in recent history. We are excited to embrace the challenge of chasing a league championship. Every game will be a dog fight, and this will make for a great atmosphere and fan experience. We will be counting on our amazing fan base to help push us to the top. This is going to be an exciting season.”
UTEP begins C-USA action at LA Tech (Dec. 18) before hosting UAB (Dec. 29) in the conference home opener. The Miners will then look to end 2022 on a high note at Rice (Dec. 31) on New Year’s Eve.
