Wheaton has revealed an early '22-'23 schedule :
https://athletics.wheaton.edu/sports/womens-basketball/schedule

That's the earliest schedule posting I can remember. It warms my heart.

You gotta let people know who you're playing, so they know whether to schedule you or not.  It's the new way of the world.

While in theory, factoring in SOS and other NCAAW tournament selection criteria is important in schedule decision making, teams generally ONLY post their upcoming schedule once it is finished/completed. Wheaton posted a complete schedule of 25 games. The reason why they’ve posted their schedule is because, like their recruiting, they’ve done their work early in identifying potential opponents and scenarios that will lead to games which will provide the best chance for a successful season.

Any coach inquiring about scheduling Wheaton for this season will heretofore receive a “No thanks, we’re finished” response.  The process of scheduling is months in the making and done “behind the scenes” via phone, email, text, and personal connections - during a time when most people aren’t posting their schedules online.

I might be wrong, but I think this is a joke aimed at the nonsense that is the NCAA's non-conference strength of schedule metric. :)

Not so much a joke, but that is the reference.  I think you're going to see a lot less secrecy in this process moving forward.  Good coaches are going to want to know who else is on your schedule.

North Park's Esther Miller was named CCIW Women's Field Athlete of the Week for her performance at the prestigious Drake Relays.

A preliminary schedule for North Park :
https://athletics.northpark.edu/sports/womens-basketball/schedule
I think Greg deserves to be included on the Florida trip, as long as he agrees to broadcast from whatever gym is used there.
What's his name, the Tampa quarterback, would agree to come over and do complimentary color commentary.

Coach Shain will need to improvise developing an offense, obviously depending on the variety of talent among the new arrivals.
Last season, seniors Lauren Lee and Emily Czuhajewski made 42 and 41 3FGs respectfully (and respectively).
The next highest was 6.
Katelyn Sparlin hit 5 of 8. She may be relied on a little more, to pull a defender out to the 3-line. Yeah, 8 attempts is a small sample.
I'm sure any number of the other returning players are putting work in from behind the arc.
30% from three is good for D3 WBB, but even the low 20%s warrants some defensive attention.

Eight games into last season, Scranton had a good record : 6-2.
A few months later, they were 27-2.

I'll accept your best of luck wish for '22-'23, although I am not connected to any particular team or school.
I did see four games at Hope, the March 2012 WBB Final Four, including Amherst's only losses of that season.
