The Pace Women’s Basketball Team has a new look, with a new roster and new jerseys. They hope to match or succeed last year’s success: An Elite 8 Berth and NE-10 Regular Season Championship.

4 freshmen joined the team, the other 11 members returned from last year. Notably, guards Lauren Hackett and Kelsey Quain are back as graduate students making up for the year of eligibility lost in the 2020-21 season due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Setters’ new home jerseys debuted on their Instagram for Media Day, sponsored by the Air Jordan Brand. In a TikTok they posted, the side of the jerseys can be seen with a leopard print. There appears to be less blue trim, seen only on the numbers and letters compared to last year. The team’s road blue jerseys were seen at their first game of the season on November 11th vs Daeman College in Rochester, N.Y.

This year’s schedule is made of 27 games. 13 games will be at home at the Goldstein Center, and 14 on the road. Pace has 7 non-conference games, 20 for NE-10 competition.

Following the Damean College match, Pace will play Roberts Wesleyan University the next day. On November 19th, they welcome the University of Bridgeport to Goldstein, followed by a trip to Staten Island, N.Y. to play the College of Staten Island. The Setters go to New Jersey on December 13th for a tilt with Felician University, then go back home to play Dominican College on December 16th. Saint Thomas Aquinas College comes to Goldstein on January 16th to finish non-conference play.
