WBB Announces 2020-21 Schedule
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami women’s basketball head coach Katie Meier, in conjunction with the Atlantic Coast Conference, released Wednesday the schedule for the 2020-21 season.
The Canes open the 2020-21 campaign with four non-conference games at home in the Watsco Center. They will then move into a 20-game conference schedule, up two games from last season’s total.
Miami is set to face four Associated Press top 25 teams in Louisville, NC State, Notre Dame and Syracuse, with all four games coming during the conference slate.
In three of its four non-conference games, Miami will square off with a team from the Atlantic Sun. The Canes are 25-3 all-time against ASUN teams and hold a five-game winning streak over teams from the conference.
The Canes tip off the season on Nov. 25, taking on Jacksonville University, before hosting a familiar foe in North Florida on Nov. 28.
On Dec. 3, the Canes host Florida Atlantic for the first time since 2012. Miami has never lost a game to the Owls, boasting a 17-0 record against the team from Boca Raton, Fla.
The Canes wrap up non-conference action against another Atlantic Sun opponent in Stetson on Dec. 6.
Miami is set to play four ACC teams prior to the holiday break, beginning with back-to-back home games against Syracuse on Dec. 10 and Duke on Dec. 13.
The Canes head up to Atlanta on Dec. 17 to take on Georgia Tech before traveling to ACC preseason favorite Louisville on Dec. 20.
Following a short break for the holidays, Miami will close out the calendar year with a home contest against Notre Dame on Dec. 31.
Three of the Canes’ first four games of 2021 are at home, as Miami hosts Clemson (Jan. 3), North Carolina (Jan. 10) and Florida State (Jan. 14), with a trip to Wake Forest breaking up the action on Jan. 7.
Miami then plays a pair of Northeast foes on the road back-to-back, the first meeting Syracuse for a second time on Jan. 17 and then visiting Pittsburgh on Jan. 21.
Coming off a bye week, the Canes host Georgia Tech and Boston College on Jan. 28 and Jan. 31, respectively.
Miami makes a trip to the Research Triangle to start February, facing NC State on Feb. 4 and Duke on Feb. 7.

Two of the final three games of the regular season take place in Coral Gables against Virginia on Feb. 21 and Wake Forest on Feb. 25. The Canes conclude the regular season with a trip to Clemson on Feb. 28.
Game times and television designations for Miami’s 2020-21 schedule will be announced at a later date.
ATTENDANCE AT THE WATSCO CENTER
UM Athletics continues to work with medical experts, University leadership, state, and local government officials to determine if fans will be allowed to attend games at the Watsco Center this season. For the months of November and December, fans will not be permitted to attend games at the Watsco Center.
In the event fans are permitted to attend games after the first two months, season ticket holders will be given priority access to purchase tickets.
