CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard women's basketball head coach Kathy Delaney-Smith released the team's 2016-17 schedule which features 12 regular season games to be played at Lavietes Pavilion, as well as flights to Kansas and Minnesota.

The 43rd season of Harvard women's basketball officially begins on the road, where the squad will take on Minnesota Nov. 12 in a homecoming for senior captain Taylor Finley. The Crimson returns for three of four at Lavietes, hosting Maine (Nov. 15) and Samford (Nov. 18) before making the quick trip to Boston University (Nov. 22) and returning back for Fairfield Nov. 26. Harvard wraps the month of November at Sacred Heart Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Two home games to start the month of December feature Temple and NJIT on noon Dec. 4. Harvard makes the trip to Kansas – the home state of Grace Keane – Dec. 7 before finals begin. The Crimson resumes play Dec. 21 at Siena and will play in the Fordham Holiday Tournament after Christmas, Dec. 29-30.

The new year kicks off conference play against Dartmouth Jan. 7. Harvard will travel to Philadelphia and LaSalle for one final nonconference game before taking on the Big Green again in Hanover Jan. 21.

League play continues at home against Cornell (Jan. 27) and Columbia (Jan. 28) before the Crimson heads to Penn (Feb. 3) and Princeton (Feb. 4). Brown (Feb. 10) and Yale (Feb. 11) visit Cambridge before Harvard takes a four-game swing to Columbia/Cornell and Yale/Brown. The Crimson wraps the regular season against Princeton March 3 and Penn March 4.

Each of Harvard's home non-conference games, and all Ivy League games, will be broadcast live on the Ivy League Digital Network.
