With five-consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament under its belt, the St. John’s women’s basketball team will play another loaded schedule in 2014-15, a slate which was unveiled today in conjunction with the release of the BIG EAST schedule of games.
The Red Storm will take on five teams that appeared in last year’s NCAA Tournament, in addition to nine teams that found a spot in the WNIT in the Spring of 2014.
“This year’s conference schedule proves once again why the BIG EAST continues to be one of the premier leagues in the nation,” said Head Coach Joe Tartamella. “We have 18 games against some of the best competition that the NCAA has to offer.
“When you look at this grueling conference slate and then factor in our non-conference schedule featuring the likes of SEC powers Florida and Auburn, defending National Champion Connecticut in the World’s Most Famous Arena, WNIT quarterfinalist USF and nine-time defending MAAC Champion Marist, I think 2014-15 will be a great test for St. John’s Women’s Basketball.”
This season, the Red Storm will have an unprecedented five regular season games broadcast on national television, highlighted by a game against defending National Champion UConn on ESPN2.
The crown jewel of the schedule awaits following those two games, as the Red Storm takes on defending National Champion UConn in the Maggie Dixon Classic at Madison Square Garden. This will mark the fourth-straight year that St. John’s will play in the event remembering the legacy of former Army coach Maggie Dixon, who tragically passed away at the age of 28 in 2006. Last season, the Red Storm upended nationally-ranked Texas A&M in “The World’s Most Famous Arena.”
There are plenty of more great games in store for fans of the St. John’s Women’s Basketball Team, and Season tickets are available now and are just $65 for a full-season package. For more information call 1-888-GOSTORM or visit RedStormTix.com.
