Wednesday, August 25, 2010 | 8:29 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA – So much for easing into the job. Robin Pingeton's first season as the Missouri women's basketball coach will be anything but easy.

The Missouri women’s basketball team announced its schedule for the 2010-11 season Tuesday. The schedule includes 13 games against teams that made the NCAA Tournament in 2010.

The non-conference schedule for the Tigers includes six teams that made the NCAA Tournament last season, including two teams who made the Elite Eight, Florida State and Xavier.

The season begins on Nov. 12 against Memphis in Memphis, Tenn.

The toughest stretch will be when the Tigers compete in the 11th annual Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands on Nov. 25 to 27. Missouri is scheduled to face Tennessee, Georgetown and Georgia Tech.

Missouri will open its home schedule Dec. 7 against Tennessee-Martin at Mizzou Arena. The Tigers will play 14 home games during the season.

The Big 12 schedule starts with a home game against the Texas Longhorns on Jan. 8, 2011.
