WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- Another hoops season is right around the corner as the Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s basketball team will have a new look roster and coaching staff for the 2012-13 season. New head coach Carlos Palacios announced the upcoming season schedule on Tuesday with the campaign set to kickoff with two scrimmages and then the official start to the season on November 9th at Nova Southeastern University.
The team will host their first of 12 home contests on November 17th when they take on Rollins (Fla.) College at the Rubin Arena beginning with a tipoff of 5 pm.
Palm Beach Atlantic will play all nine members of the Sunshine State Conference this season including eight of the schools twice (home and home).

The Shaw University Lady Bears will visit West Palm Beach for the second straight season and are coming off a year in which they hoisted the NCAA Division II National Championship trophy. The Sailfish gave the Bears a true test last season by sending the game to overtime where Shaw eventually came out on top.
