BELLINGHAM, Wash. - The Western Washington University women's basketball team has 14 home games, including two tournaments, on its 2014-15 schedule.
The Vikings, who reached the West Regional last year for the 14th time in 15 seasons as a member of NCAA Division II, will host a West Region Crossover Classic on Nov. 21 and 22, playing Azusa Pacific and UC San Diego, and the Lynda Goodrich Classic on Nov. 28 and 29, facing Tampa and Northwest.
In between those tournaments, WWU entertains San Francisco State on Nov. 25.
Nine Great Northwest Athletic Conference counters conclude the Vikings' appearances at Sam Carver Gymnasium.

WWU is on the road for two tournaments, meeting Humboldt State and Fresno Pacific at Seattle Pacific's West Region Crossover Classic on Nov. 14 and 15, and meeting West Texas A&M and Southern Indiana at the South Point Holiday Hoops Classic on Dec. 18 and 19.

WWU opens with two exhibition games, playing host to Fraser Valley on Oct. 26 and traveling to British Columbia on Nov. 1.
Head coach Carmen Dolfo is beginning her 24th season with a 494-183 record. She needs just six victories to become the first four-year collegiate women's coach in the state of Washington to reach the 500 milestone.
The Vikings, who return four starters and 10 letter winners, are led by backcourt players, first-team GNAC all-star shooting guard Katie Colard (Sr., McCleary/Elma) and point guard Jenni White (Sr., Spokane/East Valley), who received GNAC honorable mention and was the GNAC Tournament MVP.
WWU has won the last two GNAC Tourney titles.
