KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Almost all of Tennessee women's basketball schedule has been released after the conference and non-conference dates were released on Wednesday.
One more non-conference home game will be added at a later time.

"We have a challenging and exciting slate of games, and our players will have an opportunity to compete against several experienced and talented lineups. Our desire is that with this schedule, we can develop into the best team we can possibly be."
