Sacred Heart released its 2018-19 women's basketball non-conference on Thursday, which features four home games that the Pioneers will host at the Pitt Center.

The Pioneers open the campaign at UMASS on November 6. The home opener comes a week later when SHU hosts Siena at the Pitt Center, before traveling to Colonial Athletic Association member New Hampshire on November 18.

Three days later, the Pioneers will hit the road to take on Big East foe Providence, before returning home to take on Monmouth on November 25th. Sacred Heart closes its November non-conference schedule on the road at Hofstra on November 29th.

SHU plays three of its five December non-conference games on the road, but begins the month with a home contest against Stony Brook on December 4th.  The Pioneers will then hit the road for a December 8th contest against Lehigh. After an eight-day break for final exams, the Pioneers travel to take on Manhattan. SHU closes its home non-conference schedule against St. Joe's on December 20th.

The non-conference finale is December 29, when SHU travels to Lexington to take on the Kentucky Wildcats.

SHU returns 12 players from last season's team that finished third in the Northeast Conference and advanced to the NEC Tournament semifinals. The Pioneers have posted 79 wins over the past five seasons, with two WNIT appearances and an NEC Regular Season Championship.
