Prairie View A&M Women’s Basketball Releases 2018-'19 Schedule

September 26, 2018

A competitive schedule awaits Sandy Pugh, Prairie View A&M's University new women's basketball coach.

The Lady Panthers are set to face a challenging 2018-19 schedule announced by Pugh.

"This year we will definitely have some competitive games," Pugh said. "We open with Jarvis Christian, Arlington Baptist, Oklahoma State, and also in the UTRGV Tournament. Oklahoma State is a team that I am very familiar with. We will face Rice here at home and then we have a four-game road trip before rounding out December with Texas A&M and then begin SWAC play."

The regular season begins Friday, November 9, when they host Jarvis Christian. PVAMU will take its first road trip when they face Oklahoma State Thursday, November 15. PVAMU will return home the following week when they match up against Arlington Baptist Monday, November 19.

Also on tap in the first few weeks is a tournament at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in which Pugh's team faces the host team Friday, November 30, and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Saturday, December 1.

The list of non-conference games continues as the Lady Panthers return home to host Rice Saturday, December 8, for a 3 p.m. match. PVAMU will complete the remainder of December on the road when they face Arkansas Sunday, December 16, Iowa State Wednesday, December 19, and Texas A&M Friday, December 21.

Playing a wide range of teams is something that Pugh feels that will help her team prepare for Southwestern Athletic Conference play.

"I really like our schedule," said Pugh. "It really has great balance and we get to see a multitude of styles of play, which is good for us in terms of preparing for conference play."

The SWAC 18-games slate will begin Saturday, January 5, when the Lady Panthers travel to Baton Rouge to face Southern and then travel over to Alcorn, Miss to meet up with Alcorn State for a 5:30 tip Monday, January 7.

PVAMU will open their home SWAC schedule play, when they host rival Texas Southern Saturday, January 12, at 3 p.m. They will continue its home contests when they face Jackson State Saturday, January 19 and Grambling State Monday, January 21.

The Lady Panthers will wrap up the month of January at Mississippi Valley Saturday, January 26, and at Arkansas Pine Bluff Monday, January 28.

PVAMU will begin the month of February when they host Alabama A&M February 2, for a 3 p.m. tip and match up with Alabama State Monday, February 4th, at 5:30 p.m.

Prairie View A&M will begin the second half of league play when they play at Texas Southern at 5:30 p.m., Saturday, February 9.

The Lady Panthers will continue road play at Jackson State (Saturday, February 16) and Grambling State (Monday, February 18), before they return home to finish out the month of February when they host Mississippi Valley Saturday, February 23, at 2 p.m. and Arkansas Pine Bluff Monday, February 25, at 5:30 p.m.

PVAMU will open the month of March at Alabama A&M in Huntsville, AL, for a 4 p.m. match up on March 2nd and will continue play in Alabama at Alabama State, in Montgomery, for a 5:30 p.m. tip on March 4.

The SWAC regular season ends the same way it begins, with the Lady Panthers hosting Southern on Thursday, March 7, at 5:30 p.m. and concluding with Alcorn State Saturday, March 9, at 3 p.m.

The Southwestern Athletic Conference tournament begins March 12 with first-round games at campus sites, then head to Birmingham, AL, for the semifinals and finals March 15-16.
