The Fairfield women’s basketball team is not easing into the 2019-20 season as the first two games of the season come on the road against Temple and Seton Hall, a pair of programs with recent postseason appearances both looking to rebound from disappointing seasons.

Fairfield announced it schedule Wednesday and its home opener is against Dartmouth on Nov. 17. Navy, Hofstra and Brown are the other non-conference games being played at home.

MAAC play begins with a game at Siena on Jan. 2 and the games against five-time defending MAAC regular-season champions Quinnipiac are set for Jan. 25 in Hamden and Feb. 22 in Fairfield.

MAAC rookie of the year Lou Lopez-Senechal as well as Katie Armstrong and Sam Kramer, who started every game during an 11-20 season, lead the list of returning players for Fairfield.
