Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's athletic department and head women's basketball coach Abby Pyzik Smith are excited to announce the Hornets' 2018-19 women's basketball schedule.

This season's slate carries with it some new challenges, including games against three teams that won games in the 2018 NCAA Division III tournament and a new addition to the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.

Lynchburg will start the campaign with a pair of home non-conference affairs, starting Saturday, Nov. 10 against North Carolina Wesleyan. The season tips off at noon. The following Tuesday, Nov. 13, the Hornets will welcome Averett to Turner Gymnasium at 7 p.m.

The Hornets will hit the road north in the season's second weekend for Union, N.J., and tournament action at Kean University. Lynchburg will face Landmark Conference power Moravian in the first round Friday, Nov. 16 at 5 p.m. The following day's opponent will be determined by the outcome of that game.

Lynchburg will return to Virginia to make a trip to Mary Washington, another perennial contender, Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. in its last test before ODAC competition.

The Hornets start league competition Tuesday, Nov. 27 at Washington and Lee at 7 p.m., and they'll follow that with a trip to defending league champion Randolph-Macon, Thursday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m.

Other conference dates of note include the league home-opener, Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. against crosstown rival Randolph; a Saturday, Jan. 12 trip to Emory & Henry (2 p.m.), a 2018 NCAA qualifer; Saturday, Jan. 26 vs. Roanoke (Alumni Day, 2 p.m.); Wednesday, Jan. 30 vs. Emory & Henry (7 p.m.); and Wednesday, Feb. 6 at Ferrum (7 p.m.), marking the first ODAC contest between the two, as the Panthers join the league this year.

Lynchburg will celebrate Senior Day and hold its CODE RED contest Saturday, Feb. 16 vs. Shenandoah. Festivities will occur just before the 2 p.m. tip-off.

The Hornets will also introduce the Lynchburg Holiday Tournament, a late-December jamboree featuring some of the elite teams in the region. Lynchburg will take on perennial power Christopher Newport to kick off the event Saturday, Dec. 29 at 2 p.m., and will face Meredith at 4 p.m. the following day. League rival Emory & Henry will make the trip to the Hill City and will play those same opponents.

Lynchburg's women enter the 2018-19 campaign in search of a fourth-straight 20-win season and a seventh-straight campaign with double-digit ODAC victories. The Hornets are looking to reach the NCAA tournament for a third time in four seasons after narrowly missing a bid in 2018; Lynchburg finished the year ranked sixth in Division III's South Region.
