Las Vegas, NV (SportsNetwork.com) - Washington and Texas will play a regular season men's basketball game in China, the Pac-12 announced on Saturday.

The meeting between the non-conference foes on Nov. 14, 2015, will mark the first time a major United States sports league holds a regular season game in China, according to the Pac-12.

The conference previously sent men's and women's basketball teams, a women's All-Star volleyball team and a delegation of men's basketball coaches to China for competitive exhibitions and clinics under its Globalization Initiative.

The Pac-12 also announced Friday it will send an All-Star men's basketball team to China in August.

The team, coached by Oregon State's Craig Robinson, will travel to at least two cities in China and play two to three exhibition games against top Chinese professional teams and one game against a leading Chinese university team.
