The Gophers women went 21-11 and 9-9 in the Big Ten in Lindsay Whalen’s debut season as head coach. Whalen’s second year will see the U play twice against Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Ohio State and Wisconsin. Showing up just once on the league slate will be Maryland, Michigan, Northwestern and Rutgers at home, and Illinois, Michigan State, Penn State and Purdue on the road.

Looks like the Gophers are playing at George Washington on dec 10th.

The Colonials won't travel outside of the District for the rest of the slate, starting with a home matchup against Minnesota (Dec. 10). The Golden Gophers, coming off a trip to the WNIT, are the lone program on the schedule that the Colonials have never faced. GW has now hosted at least one Power 5 non-conference foe in 22 of the last 23 campaigns dating back to 1996-97.
 
Historically, the full schedule for both women's and men's basketball appears sometime during the run of the fair as the Big Ten releases the schedule in late August. We can hope that this history continues to repeat!

Usually, it's a week before the fair.

That way they have the ticket specials at the booth ready to go.
 
It would be the Vancouver Showcase. If you look at the article and review their schedule, Houston has Stanford, Syracuse, Mississippi State and Gophers listed but not on regular games listed up top. one would assume those are 5 of the 8 teams that will go to 2019 Vancouver showcase. hell of a tournament if gophers are in that if you ask me.


I also see Minnesota mentioned in this University of Houston article (3rd paragraph), but not on their non-conference schedule. Maybe they're talking about a holiday tournament, I'm not sure...

Updated schedule known to date:

Sunday November 10th-Vermont

Sunday November 17th-Arizona State

Saturday November 23rd- Montana State

Vancouver Showcase Tournament (Thursday November 28th, Friday November 29th and Saturday November 30th)
(Known/Listed Team: Gophers, Houston, Stanford, Syracuse, Mississippi State and 3 remaining)

Wednesday December 4th- at Notre Dame

Tuesday December 10th-at George Washington

Assuming its another 11 game non-conference schedule, there is only 3 remaining games to be found out. Montana State and Vermont each have seniors from MN so my guess is that was the planning behind adding them.

Cal Baptist is also at the Vancouver Showcase.

Add UC Davis:
Sunday, Dec. 15 — AT MINNESOTA: The Golden Gophers finished 21-11 overall and 9-9 in the Big Ten Conference, finishing tied for sixth during the regular season… They advanced to the second round of the WNIT before falling to Cincinnati… This will be the first meeting between Minnesota and UC Davis, and only the second meeting with a Big Ten school after the Aggies battled Indiana in the "Elite Eight" of the 2018 WNIT… The Golden Gophers return three of their top four scorers off of last season's squad, led by junior guard Destiny Pitts, who averaged 16.3 ppg and shot 42 percent from the field.
With UC Davis:

279 Vermont
219 @ George Washington
150 Montana State
71 UC Davis
16 Arizona State
2 @ Notre Dame
