AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Augusta State head women's basketball coach Nate Teymer has unveiled the 2011-12 schedule for his second year at the helm of the Lady Jaguar program.
ASU opens its 2011-12 campaign with Paine College on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 5:30 p.m., in the annual matchup of cross-town rivals in Christenberry Fieldhouse. The Lady Jags topped Paine 52-37 last December in Carter Gym.
ASU heads to Virginia State to play in the VSU Chick-Fil-A Classic on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 25-26, and is slated to take on Elizabeth City State and Virginia State in the tournament.
The Lady Jags open their Peach Belt Conference schedule on the road, first at Francis Marion on Saturday, Dec. 3 and continuing on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at Flagler. Six of ASU's first nine contests are on the road.
"We've put together a demanding schedule that will definitely challenge our student-athletes," said Teymer. "Anytime you play in a league like ours with so many quality teams, you've got to prepare them to play at a consistent and high level. We play in arguably the best Division II conference in the country, so we have to be ready when league play rolls around."
