The Wyoming Cowgirl basketball team has announced its 2022-23 non-conference slate. The schedule includes 11 regular season contests and a pair of exhibitions under first-year Head Coach Heather Ezell.

Wyoming opens with a pair of home exhibitions as it hosts Colorado Christian October 28 and Sioux Falls November 5. The Cowgirls will open the season on the road for the first time since 2009 as they face North Dakota, Nov. 11. The Nov. 15 game against Gonzaga will be the fourth-straight season the Cowgirls and Lady Bulldogs will meet and is the first of six regular season non-conference contests at home for the Cowgirls. The contest begins a three-game homestand for UW that includes Denver (Nov. 18) and Regis (Nov. 22). It will be the 16th consecutive season that Wyoming will face Denver, dating back to the 2007-08 season.

Next, the Cowgirls will travel to the Pacific Thanksgiving Tournament Nov. 25 and 26, where they will face Pacific and San Francisco. It marks the second-straight season the Cowgirls will participate in a Thanksgiving Weekend tournament. Following the tournament, UW will have another three-game stretch in Laramie as Montana State comes to town December 2. Wyoming then plays host to New Mexico Highlands and Kansas City Dec. 5 and 11, respectively.

The Cowgirls close non-conference play with a pair of road trips where they will face Nebraska in Lincoln for the second consecutive year Dec. 18, before closing with a Dec. 20 game at Wichita State, which will finish off their home-and-home series with the Shockers.
