The Washington Huskies men's basketball schedule is mostly complete now, as Cleveland State and Florida International have been named as home opponents in the opening portion of the College Basketball Experience basketball tournament at Hec Ed.
The updated schedule also includes times and TV arrangements for most games.
Here's a quick breakdown of highlights from the UW site:
More than 65 percent of the opponents that appear on the University of Washington's men's 2008-09 basketball schedule participated in postseason championship action last spring. The most successful of those was NCAA champ Kansas, the Huskies' semifinal opponent in the O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic.
The UW's schedule features a total of 15 teams that played in the postseason, including eight that appeared in the NCAA Tournament and seven that were invited to play in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). A total of 26 of Washington's 31 games have been pre-selected to appear on television, while the remaining five are still being considered.
And finally, tickets have gone on sale for the semifinal, consolation and championship games of the CBE tournament, which will be played in Kansas City. Here is a link to the tournament website.
