The Northeastern women’s basketball team enters the 2023-2024 season under the guidance of a new head coach, Priscilla Edwards-Lloyd, who previously was an assistant coach at Clemson. 

Not long after, the Huskies added Whitney Edwards as an associate head coach and Nicole Ambrose as the director of operations. 

Together, they’ll build on a successful 2022-2023 campaign that saw the Huskies notch a program-record 13 conference wins on the way to a share of the CAA title (with Drexel and Towson). It was the first conference championship for Northeastern, which finished the year 13-5 in conference play and 19-12 overall.

Among the players expected to lead the way for Northeastern are a trio of standouts who were recognized for their performances last year—guard Derin Erdogan (All-CAA first team), forward Deja Bristol (CAA Sixth Player of the Year) and guard Gemima Motema (All-CAA third team/CAA All-Defensive team).

Erdogan and Motema both received recognition prior to this season, too, earning All-CAA preseason first-team and second-team honors, respectively, while Northeastern picked up two first-place votes and landed in the No. 3 spot in the 2023-2024 CAA Women’s Basketball Preseason Poll.

In her first season with the Huskies, Erdogan, now a senior, was the team’s leading scorer with 15 points per game, which was sixth in the CAA. She also led the team in assists with 125 (four per game) and 3-pointers (2.2 per game), while ranking second on the team with 50 steals.

Motema, now a junior, averaged 12.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and two assists per game. 

Here’s a look at the Northeastern 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.
