Two days later on Nov. 15, CSU plays at Buffalo before opening the home slate against Niagara on Nov. 19, beginning a three game homestand that includes games against Toledo (Nov. 23) and Florida A&M (Nov. 26).

A Nov. 28 game at Indiana on starts a stretch that includes four of the next five contests on the road, including contests at Akron (Dec. 11), Marshall (Dec. 18) and Ohio (Dec. 21) before the final nonconference game of the season on Dec. 28 against Lake Erie.

"The game at Indiana is a return game and will be a big one for us following our overtime win against them at home last year," Peterson Abiad said. "The game at Marshall will give us a chance to take our lone senior (Shawnita Garland) back home to play in front of her family and friends."

CSU opens the 18 game Horizon League schedule in Chicago around New Year's, playing at UIC on Dec. 31 and at Loyola on Jan. 2.

The league home opener is on Jan. 6 against Milwaukee and the regular season concludes with three straight home contests against Youngstown State (Feb. 26), Loyola (March 3) and UIC (March 5).

"We put the nonleague schedule together in anticipation of the tough league schedule that we will face this year," Peterson Abiad said. "I believe that from top to bottom, this could be one of the strongest years we have had in the Horizon League and we will have a lot of maturing and growing to do as a team before we get into the league schedule."

The Horizon League Championship, which CSU will be defending for the second time in three years, begins on March 7 with two opening round games. The championship game is March 13.

Following are some notes about the schedule: 
• The Vikings will play six games against teams that advanced to postseason play last season. CSU will play twice against Green Bay, who advanced to the NCAA tournament and second round, as well as two games versus Butler and one against Toledo, which both played in the WNIT. The final game comes against Akron, which appeared in the inaugural Women's Basketball Invitational.

• Cleveland State will be facing two schools for the first time in program history; at Cornell (Nov. 13) and Florida A&M (Nov. 28). The Vikings have played everyone else on the schedule at least once.

• The 14 home contests are tied for the second most home games in school history, trailing the 15 home games the Vikings played in 1998-99, 2006-07 and 2008-09.

• CSU will play in-state rivals Toledo, Akron, Ohio, Youngstown State and Wright State a total of seven times.

• The Vikings are just six wins shy away from reaching the 400-win mark.

• The men's and women's basketball teams will play five doubleheaders this season. The first two are true doubleheaders against Detroit (Jan. 20) and Wright State (Jan. 22). The next twinbill is on Feb. 12 with the women hosting Butler and then men Youngstown State with the final doubleheader on Feb. 26 as the women take on Youngstown State and the men Green Bay. Over the last three seasons, the squads have combined to go 23-5 in doubleheaders, including nine sweeps, with the women owning a 12-2 mark and the men going 11-3.

• The Horizon League Championship begins with two first round games on March 7 and the quarterfinals on March 9 at campus sites. The semifinals (March 11) and championship (March 13) will be played at the highest remaining seed.
