Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

On the schedule

While some Pac-10 teams are beginning to release their schedules, the Huskies are still working on theirs, still trying to find two more games.
UW hoped to get a home-and-home with Georgia Tech beginning this year, but that has fallen through, as did a hoped-for road game at Fresno State. If those had worked out, UW’s schedule would likely be done now.
Instead, UW is still trying to find a “big-name” team to fill one of those slots, and more of a regional opponent for the other.
It won’t be Gonzaga, as the two won’t play next year. However, I’m told the two schools are continuing to talk about possible games in the future, the latest thought being that they would play an annual game at KeyArena — I don’t know if that would be in addition to the game GU plays there every year or in place of that.
Here’s the non-conference schedule UW has put together in order of date (though I don’t have exact dates):
at Portland
College Basketball Experience
UW will host first-round games from Nov. 16-19. If it wins those two games, it then advances to Kansas City where it would likely first play Kansas, and then either Florida or Syracuse. So this could be four games.
Pacific
Oklahoma State
Open Date
Portland State
Eastern Washington
Lehigh
Open Date
Morgan State
One of the open dates figures to be a regional opponent. UW is hoping the other will be a road game against a big-name.
If Ga. Tech and Fresno State had worked out, you can see that this would have been a pretty-balanced and representative schedule, and more than enough to answer any RPI worries. That should still be the case, but the trick continues to be finding the last two opponents.
