The Washington men's basketball team will open it's regular season Nov. 13 at home against Wright State. That will be the first of three straight days of double-headers making up the Athletes in Action tournament to be held at Hec Ed.
The Huskies will make their home debut before that: Nov. 4, with an exhibition game against Central Washington.
Other highlights of the regular season will include two Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series games: Dec. 3 at Texas Tech and Dec. 22 hosting Texas A&M. Other interesting out-of-conference games include a visit to the John Wooden Classic in Anaheim against an opponent to be named, and visits from familiar faces Portland State, Montana and Seattle U., and rarities San Jose State (including former Husky Adrian Oliver) and San Francisco. (And nope, no Gonzaga.)
Conference play begins and ends against Oregon State: starting Dec. 31 at home and ending March 6 in Corvallis. On March 4, the Huskies will play what will likely be their final game against the Ducks at Mac Court.
Never miss a local story.
Washington State visits Jan. 30 and UCLA on Feb. 20.
The Pac-10 tournament will be played March 10-13 at Staples Center in LA.
