A trip to Hawaii and a four-team event involving the state's NAIA schools at the Sanford Pentagon highlight the Dakota Wesleyan University 2016-17 women's basketball schedule.

DWU will play a pair of exhibition games against Division I teams before playing in the NAIA Pentagon Classic at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls. The Tigers will also play at the Hawaii Classic before Christmas.

Dakota Wesleyan will play its first nine games on the road, including exhibition games against Division I teams University of Wyoming and South Dakota State University.

November begins with four games in six days, highlighted by contests against in-state foes at the Sanford Pentagon. Dakota State University and Presentation College will each play the Tigers in Sioux Falls.

The DWU men's basketball team will also play in the classic. Mount Marty will round out the four-team event but the Tigers and Lancers won't play because they're already conference opponents.
