SEATTLE -- The Pac-12 Conference released the men's basketball schedule for the 2012-13 season and Washington will open with three games on the road.
The 2012 Pac-12 champions start the conference slate with a rivalry battle at Washington State (Jan. 5). They continue their road swing with stops at California (Jan. 9) and Stanford (Jan. 12). The three-game road trip for Washington will come on the heels of a cross-country game vs. Connecticut (Dec. 29) to wrap up the non-conference portion of its schedule.
The Huskies first home series will come on Jan. 16 and Jan. 19 when they will host Colorado and Utah for the first time in Pac-12 action. Last season, the Buffaloes and Utes did not travel to Alaska Airlines Arena.
Washington hits the road again for a trip to the Willamette Valley, facing Oregon State on Jan. 23 and Oregon on Jan. 26. They return home to wrap up the first half of the conference schedule by hosting Arizona (Jan. 31) and Arizona State (Feb. 2) -- a series that will mark the only Thursday-Saturday meetings for UW during the Pac-12 schedule.
Its back on the road for the Dawgs to start the second half of the Pac-12 schedule when the Huskies play at UCLA and USC on Feb. 7 and Feb. 10, respectively. They will return home after that and play five of their final seven games in the friendly confines of Alaska Airlines Arena.
Oregon (Feb. 13) and Oregon State (Feb. 16) visit Seattle before the Huskies wrap up the road portion of their schedule at Arizona (Feb. 20) and at Arizona State (Feb. 23).
Washington ushers in March with home contests against Washington State (March 3) and USC (March 6) before saying goodbye at home to its seniors on March 9 against UCLA.
In all, Washington will play six conference games on Wednesday, twice on Thursday, eight times on Saturday and twice on Sunday. The Pac-12 will announce game times and TV broadcasts in late August.
Washington will not play at Colorado or Utah this year and will not host California or Stanford.
The Huskies will embark on a European and Senegal summer tour starting Aug. 25.
