GREENSBORO - The Tarrell Robinson era will start in Lincoln, Neb., on November 9. The North Carolina A&T women's basketball team released its 2012-13 schedule on Friday.
The Aggies will be playing a total of 29 games with 14 of those games at Corbett Sports Center.
"I think my staff and I did a good job of putting together a solid non-conference schedule that will give our players an opportunity to showcase their ability against teams from some of the most competitive conferences in the country before we get ready to compete in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference," said Robinson. "Our fans will get a chance to see us in the Corbett Sports Center seven times before we start conference play in January. I think it is great for us to have that many home games early."
The Aggies' opener will be followed by another road game in Nebraska as the Aggies face the University of Nebraska-Omaha on Nov. 12 before hosting their home opener against Iona on Friday, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. The Aggies will finish up November with a game at Siena, a home contest against archrival Winston-Salem State and another road contest at Richmond.
