UW fast break to Colorado-Utah in 2012

The Pac-10 has announced its scheduling format for conference basketball once it becomes the Pac-12 next season.

Washington will get an early look at the new campuses with a visit to Colorado on Jan. 5, 2012, and Utah on Jan. 7, 2012.

Here's a release from the league:

The Pac-10 announced today the 2011-12 Pac-12 men's and women's basketball schedules and the 10-year rotation model for scheduling.

As in previous years, the conference schedule is comprised of 18 games for each institution and will maintain the travel partner in a non-divisional format. The annual schedule will include games against an institution's traditional rival both home and away. In addition, each institution will play six other opponents both home and away (for two consecutive years), and four opponents on a single game basis - two at home and two away. The single-play opponents will rotate every two years.

The women's schedule is a mirror of the men's schedule. While opponents for both the men's and women's schedules have been established, game dates may be adjusted for television.

In 2011-12 and 2012-13, Washington will play California, Stanford, Colorado and Utah just once.

The Husky men will open the conference slate on Thursday, Dec. 29 by hosting Oregon State and then entertain Oregon on New Year's Eve. The women's schedule mirrors the men in Eugene.

The men will travel the next week to Colorado for a Thursday, Jan. 5 game, followed by a Jan. 7 visit to Utah.

On Saturday, Jan. 14, Washington and Washington State will continue their annual intrastate rivalry with the men playing in Seattle and the women in Pullman.

Washington will play Stanford and California for their only time on Jan. 19 and 21, with the men hosting the Bay Area schools and women heading to California.

The men head to Arizona on Jan. 26 and Arizona State on Jan. 28 before returning home to host UCLA on Feb. 2 and USC on Feb. 4.

Feb. 9 and 11 finds the men playing at Oregon and OSU respectively, before returning home to host ASU on Feb. 16 and Arizona on Feb. 18.

The men then cross the state to face Washington State on Feb. 25 before wrapping up the Pac-10 schedule with a trip to Los Angeles - playing USC on March 1 and UCLA on March 3.

The rotating schedule has the Huskies playing USC, UCLA, Arizona and Arizona State just once in 2013-14 and 2014-15. In 2015-16 and 2016-17 they face Oregon, OSU, Cal and Stanford just once.

Washington will play Arizona, ASU, USC and UCLA once in 2017-18 and 2018-19 and then Colorado, Utah, Oregon and OSU once in 2019-20 and 2020-2021.
