Big 12, SEC expand Women's Basketball Challenge to 10 games

The Women's Basketball Challenge pitting teams from the Southeastern Conference against the Big 12 is expanding to 10 games this season.

The leagues announced Monday that the Challenge will be held from Dec. 1-4, split across five campus sites from each conference.

The games will include South Carolina at Texas in a matchup featuring two teams that finished last season ranked in the Top 10. Tennessee hosts Baylor, which ended at No. 4.

Kentucky, which wound up No. 12, hosts Oklahoma, which finished 24th.

The Big 12 and SEC split the four games played over the past two seasons, 2-2. The first Challenge was held in 2014 in Little Rock, Arkansas, and it moved to Oklahoma City last season.
