Washington will take a December trip to New York to play Duke and Marquette at Madison Square Garden.
The school made the announcement this morning. Here’s the complete 2011-12 schedule.
The Huskies play Marquette on Dec. 6 as the second of two games that are part of the 2011 Jimmy V Classic. The game, which will be televised by ESPN, is a rematch of their 2010 first-round battle when UW beat the Golden Eagles 80-78.
Four days later on Dec. 10, the Huskies take on Duke in the fifth-ever matchup between the schools. The last time they met was 1990. CBS will televise the MSG matinee that begins at 9 a.m. (PST).
“Those two in New York, those are big-time games,” coach Lorenzo Romar said in a statement released by the school. “Those are outstanding games for our program to play two quality and tradition-rich programs like that inside Madison Square Garden.”
Romar and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski (above) shared a few friendly words between media sessions at the NCAA tournament this year.
The Huskies also play Dec. 2 at Nevada.
The Nevada-Marquette-Duke cross-country trek is the longest regular-season road trip in UW history that doesn’t include a non-conference tournament.
Washington makes its first road trip Nov. 20 to Saint Louis. Romar coached the Billikens from 1999-02 before taking over at UW.
Washington opens the the 2011-12 season hosting the Basketball Travelers Inc. (BTI) Classic at Edmundson Pavilion on Nov. 12-14. The tournament brings Portland, Florida Atlantic and Georgia State to Seattle.
Other non-conference opponents include: Houston Baptist (Nov. 25), UC Santa Barbara (Dec. 16), South Dakota State (Dec. 19), Cal State Northdridge (Dec. 22) and Seattle University (Jan. 10). Washington also plays Seattle Pacific (Nov. 4) in an exhibition. All of the games are at Hec Ed.
The Huskies begin the first Pac-12 season with a home game against Oregon State (Dec. 29) and a New Year’s Eve matchup versus Oregon (Dec. 31).
Washington goes on the road the next week and makes it first Pac-12 voyage to Colorado (Jan. 5) and Utah (Jan. 7).
Washington plays California, Stanford, Colorado and Utah just once during the regular season.
The Pac-12 Tournament begins March 7 in Los Angeles.
