Has anyone heard anything about what the WBB schedule will be since the San Juan Tournament (both women's and men's) has been cancelled due to extensive damage to buildings, loss of power, and, well, everything else we have read about the devastation in PR.  We were scheduled to play our own version of a "Directional Illinois Challenge" -- playing first Southern Illinois, then Northern Illinois.  That is still on the WBB schedule available at the UA site.

 

A Univ. Iowa WBB press release from Oct. 4 explains that the tournament was moved to Fort Lauderdale for Nov. 22-24, but the release gives just the Iowa games and opponents, and does not list other teams scheduled to be in the tournament (such as UA).  I did only a quick search because I have to leave soon, so maybe someone else can find more exact info online, or, eventually, from UA Athletics.

P.S.  I just emailed the same question to John Reilly, who handles media comms for the WBB.  Being Sunday, I don't expect a reply today,  (His email is jpreilly@albany.edu)

Aha! My confusion comes from my increasing inability to read calendars . . . I looked at the WBB schedule t hat clearly lists the tournament in mid-December, and somehow I translated that into mid-November (which the Iowa release is about).  This is happening with me too frequently but that's another story . . . let's hope the tourney is still on for the WBB (and at the same time, let's hope PR has begun to recover by then) . . .
