The New Year's weekend is loaded with Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball action as both the Richmond Spiders and VCU Rams get home games to end 2016 and begin 2017 respectively.
Richmond, in its conference opener, will face a perennial power who has struggled mightily in its non-conference schedule, as the Saint Joseph's Hawks come to the Robins Center for a 2pm tip on Saturday.
Meanwhile, VCU, already 0-1 in conference play because of a loss at George Washington in early December, will host one of the biggest conference surprises early on in La Salle, who won their conference opener in December, for a Sunday afternoon affair at 1pm at the Siegel Center.
