COMPLETE SCHEDULE

OXFORD, Miss. - Highlighted by games against 12 teams that played in the postseason in 2012 and 12 teams that won more than 20 games a year ago, the Ole Miss women's basketball team and head coach Adrian Wiggins announced the team's 2012-13 schedule today.

"This is a new beginning for our basketball team," Wiggins said.  "Anytime you have the opportunity to play an SEC schedule it's an exciting challenge. Our non-conference schedule will allow our program to grow and prepare to take on that challenge."

The Rebels' non-conference schedule will give Ole Miss fans plenty of chances to see the team at home as Ole Miss will play seven non-conference home games including five in the month of November.

Ole Miss will kick off the 2012-13 season hosting SELA on November 9 followed by a game a week later against Northwestern State on November 16. The Northwestern State game will serve as the team's annual Kid's Day Game and will tip at 11 a.m. Ole Miss will close out the month hosting Lamar, MVSU and Lipscomb.

The Rebels will travel to Ruston, La., for a game against LA Tech on December 1 followed by a game against UMass in Oxford on December 8.

The Rebels will host Belmont on Dec. 16 before hitting the road to play at Cleveland State and a tournament at Hofstra where Ole Miss will play host Hofstra on December 21 followed by a game against Northwestern on December 22.

After a short break for Christmas, Ole Miss will travel to New Orleans to play in a tournament hosted by Tulane, December 29-30, to end non-conference play. Other tournament participants include McNeese State and Eastern Michigan.

With the addition of SEC newcomers Missouri and Texas A&M, each team will play a 16-game conference schedule.  The schedule for women's basketball is a single round robin with one permanent opponent and two random opponents. Ole Miss' permanent opponent is intra-state rival, Mississippi State. All game times and the television schedule will be announced at a later date.

The Rebels will open SEC play on the road, playing at LSU on January 3.  Ole Miss will host Vanderbilt on January 6 followed by a road game at Auburn (January 10) and a home game against Alabama (January 13).

January 17 will be the first of two bye dates for Ole Miss. The Rebels will host conference newcomer Missouri on January 20 followed by back-to-back road games at Florida (January 24) and at Mississippi State (January 27). Ole Miss will close out the month of January at home hosting Arkansas on January 31.

Ole Miss will travel to Vanderbilt on February 3 and will receive its second bye date of the year on February 7.  Ole Miss will play at Tennessee (February 10) before hosting Mississippi State (February 14) and South Carolina (February 17).

The Rebels will finish the month of February with a road game at conference newcomer Texas A&M (February 21), a home against Georgia (February 24) and a home game against Kentucky (February 28).

Ole Miss' regular-season finale will be at Arkansas on March 3.

The SEC Tournament will be held March 6-10 in Duluth, Ga.
