The ISU women’s basketball team announced three date changes to its 2012–13 schedule Tuesday after Fox Sports Net picked up the games for television.

One home game — against new Big 12 foe West Virginia — has been moved to 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17. That game had been scheduled for the day prior, Saturday, Feb. 16.

The two other date changes are away games. The Cyclones will now play Oklahoma State on Sunday, Jan. 20, and Oklahoma on Thursday, Feb. 14. Those two games will tip off at noon and 7 p.m., respectively.

The ISU women’s basketball season begins in Ames with an exhibition game Nov. 1 against Northwest Missouri State. The official season will begin at home Nov. 11 against Western Illinois. 

The team’s Big 12 play begins after the new year Jan. 2 with Texas.
