FIU's first women's basketball schedule of the Marlin Chinn Era in summary: 18 Conference USA games, FIU's annual Thanksgiving Classic and Sun & Fun Classic, a bunch of non-conference games you probably don't care about and one you probably do: at the Hurricanes, Dec. 22.

The last time Dade County's Blue-and-Gold met its Orange-and-Green in women's basketball the team from the Coral Gables school beat the team from Unincorporated West Dade's 66-49 on Nov. 25, 2008. That's three FIU men's basketball coaches ago. As a Maryland assistant during five seasons in the ACC before the school swung to the Big Ten, Chinn saw Katie Meier's UM teams often. Last year's got to the second round of the NCAA tournament. 

FIU opens the season Nov. 13, at home, against Florida A&M. The Thanksgiving Classic, Nov. 27 and No. 29 features Marquette, FIU's first opponent; Wichita State; and Richmond. The Sun & Fun Classic, Dec. 28 and Dec. 30, brings in Rhode Island, Wake Forest and Hampton. Conference USA play starts at travel partner FAU on Jan. 3 and ends at Middle Tennessee State Mar. 5.

Here's the full slate. Enjoy. Download 2015-16 Schedule
