Virginia women's basketball opens the 2007-08 season at home with Longwood, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced in its release of the league schedule on Wednesday.

Entering their second season at John Paul Jones Arena, the Cavaliers host the Lancers on Nov. 10 at JPJA. UVa then entertains George Washington on Nov. 12.

The `Hoos travel to South Carolina (Nov. 15) before concluding the first week of action at home with Richmond (Nov. 18).

The Cavaliers then head to Hawaii for the 2007 Rainbow Wahine Classic on Nov. 23-25. UVa opens tourney play with Texas. The second round pits the `Hoos against Kentucky or Minnesota. The eight-team tournament also features UAB, Hartford, Lipscomb, and host Hawaii.

Virginia concludes November with the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. UVa takes on Wisconsin (Nov. 30).

UVa opens December at home with Fairleigh Dickinson (Dec. 2) before travelling to five-time national champion Connecticut (Dec. 5). That game pits former UVa assistant coach Geno Auriemma against his former mentor Debbie Ryan for the sixth time in their coaching careers. Also on the UConn coaching staff is UVa alumna Tonya Cardoza (1988-91).

UVa then closes out the month with three home games, beginning with Davidson (Dec. 20) and its own Marriott Cavalier Classic (Dec. 28-29). This year's field includes Delaware State, Marshall, and Missouri.

UVa opens the new year at Rider (Jan. 2) before beginning Atlantic Coast Conference play at Wake Forest on Jan. 6. UVa will also visit Miami, Duke and Boston College, while hosting NC State, North Carolina, Clemson, and Georgia Tech for the teams' only regular-season meeting. In its 14-game league schedule, UVa will play intra-state rival Virginia Tech, Maryland, and Florida State twice (home and away).

The Cavaliers host Rhode Island (Jan. 9) before closing out its non-conference slate with Morehead State (Feb. 4).

Virginia will make at least five television appearances. Appearing on the Regional Sports Network (Comcast Sports Net, Fox Sports Net South, SunSports, New England Sports Network) six times, UVa will face Maryland (Jan. 18 and Feb. 8), Miami (Jan. 21), North Carolina (Feb. 17), and Duke (Feb. 24).
