The California Golden Bears women's basketball team has announced the majority of the 2010-11 schedule. The Bears will again play a challenging non-conference schedule featuring five 2010 post-season participants. The Bears will be adding one more game in the coming weeks to round out the schedule.

Cal kicks off the season on Friday, Nov. 12 with a home game against the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers, a 2010 NCAA Tournament team. Cal and Rutgers last faced each other in 2008 when the Bears knocked off the then No. 2-ranked Scarlet-Knights, 66-52, at Haas Pavilion. The Bears finish off the weekend with a Sunday, Nov. 14 showdown with neighbor-school St. Mary's, a 2010 WNIT participant.

The Bears will also host Yale (Nov. 23) and Long Beach State (Dec. 11) at Haas this season.

The Colliers International Classic, Cal's annual tournament, will take place over Thanksgiving Weekend. This year, the field will include the Cal State Fullerton Titans, Tulane Green Wave, and the Portland State Vikings. Cal will take on Cal State Fullerton on Saturday, Nov. 27. They will take on either Tulane or Portland State on Sunday, Nov. 28.

The Bears will play in a second tournament on the road, the Las Vegas Holiday Hoops Tournament at the 4,000 seat arena at the South Point Casino and Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada Dec. 19-20. Cal opens with a game against UT Arlington on Sunday, Dec. 19. They close the tournament by taking on Texas Tech, a 2010 WNIT Participant.

The Bears road schedule takes them to New Mexico and Texas A&M, two teams that qualified for the postseason in 2010. Cal will play at New Mexico on Nov. 20. The Lobos advanced to the second round of last season's WNIT. The Texas A&M Aggies, a 2010 NCAA Tournament team, will host the Bears on Friday, Dec. 3, in College Station, Texas.

For the second year in a row, the Bears will open the Pac-10 schedule with the first round of the Battle of the Bay. The Stanford Cardinal will visit Haas Pavilion on Sunday, Jan. 2. The Bears and Cardinal also close out the Pac-10 schedule facing off at Stanford on Saturday, March 5.

Cal Women's basketball season ticket renewals begin August 11. All season ticket holders will receive an email on Wednesday with instructions and their login information. New season tickets will go on sale on Wednesday, August 18.
