There’s almost nowhere to go but up for the Elon women’s basketball team when it comes to the Coastal Athletic Association standings. The Phoenix finished third from the bottom of the conference standings last season, going 5-13 in CAA play and 9-21 overall. 

Perhaps it was just an anomaly, as head coach Charlotte Smith has finished with at least 14 wins in nine of her previous 12 seasons with the Phoenix. 

Heading into the new campaign, Elon landed in the No. 11 spot in the 2023-2024 CAA Women’s Basketball Preseason Poll, but there’s also some good recoignition—sophomore guard Raven Preston is an All-CAA preseason first-teamer.

Preston was the 2022-2023 CAA Rookie of the Year, which came after being named CAA Rookie of the Week six times during the season. She averaged a Phoenix-best 12.7 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game.

As Smith embarks on her 13th season as the Elon head coach, she brings with her 10 players from last year’s team. They’ll be joined by two transfers and two incoming freshmen. 

In September, Smith also announced the addition of Shelbie Davenport as the team’s director of player development and recruiting operations, which means they’re as focused on the future as they are on the current season. 

Here’s a look at the Elon University women’s basketball schedule for the 2023-2024 season.

When Is The CAA Women’s Basketball Tournament?

The 2024 CAA Women’s Basketball Championship will be held March 13-17 at the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington, D.C. 

It will come on the heels of the 2024 men’s event (March 8-12), as the conference and venue agreed to a four-year contract that will allow these championship tournaments to return each year through the 2026-2027 campaign.

The winner will earn an automatic berth into the Division I Women’s Basketball Championship. 

When Is The 2024 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship?

The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship will offer LSU the opportunity to defend its national title, won in March 2023 over Iowa, 102-85.

Selection Sunday, which will fall on March 17, is the day the 68 teams for the postseason bracket are announced. 

The First Four will kick things off March 20-21, with eight teams (the four lowest-seeded automatic qualifiers and the four lowest-seeded at-large teams) battling for the opportunity to compete in the main 64-team bracket. 

The road to the national championship will continue with the opening round of play (Round of 64) on March 22-23. The Round of 32 will take place March 24-25. The top 16 seeds will host the first- and second-round games.

Continuing with a tradition established in 2023, the Sweet 16 (regional semifinals) and Elite Eight (regional finals) will be held across two sites – Albany, New York, and Portland, Oregon. These rounds will take place March 29-April 1.

The 2024 women’s Final Four (national semifinals and national championship) will be held at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland on April 5 and April 7, respectively.
