BERKELEY, Calif. – Eighteen of Cal’s 31 matches will come against teams that played in last year’s NCAA Tournament in the 2018 schedule that was announced Monday.

Nine Pac-12 teams played in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, and the Bears play twice against each of them. Five conference teams advanced to last year’s NCAA Sweet Sixteen, two went on to the Elite Eight and one to the Final Four.

Cal will also appear 11 times on the Pac-12 Networks, including twice against rival Stanford.

The Bears open the season at home in the Molten Classic on Aug. 24-25, in which they will host Chicago State, Rutgers and Colgate. Cal then spends the following two weekends on the road, at the South Dakota Tournament against Northern Colorado, South Dakota and Northeastern; and then at the Portland State Tournament against Gonzaga, Portland State and Fresno State.

Cal will also play at East Bay rival Saint Mary’s on Sept. 15 and open Pac-12 play against Stanford at home on Sept. 19. The Bears’ first four conference matches will take place at Haas Pavilion.

The Bears return four starters from last year as well as six other student-athletes that have starting experience. Cal is also being guided by first-year head coach Jennifer Dorr.
