UW’s 2012-13 schedule rounding into shape

Four months after news leaked, Washington finalized a home-and-home series against Connecticut that begins next season.
Washington will play Dec. 29 at Harry A. Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Conn. or XL Center in Hartford, Conn. In 2013-14, the game will be held in Seattle. Possible locations include Edmundson Pavilion or KeyArena.
Television plans for the two games will be announced at a later date.
“We are excited to begin this home-and-home series,” coach Lorenzo Romar said in a statement released by the school. “It’s consistent with our non-conference scheduling philosophy to play several high profile basketball teams each year.”
UConn and Washington have met three times previously, with UConn holding a 3-0 edge, but the games have all been held at neutral sites.
The last meeting between the schools came on March 24, 2006, when UConn won 98-92 in overtime at the NCAA Washington D.C. Regional semifinals at the Verizon Center.
UConn captured a 75-74 victory on March 19, 1998, in the NCAA East Regional semifinals in Greensboro, N.C., on a buzzer-beater by Richard Hamilton.
Connecticut also won 69-48 on Dec. 1, 1998, at the Great Eight Basketball Classic at the United Center in Chicago.
Washington’s 2012-13 non-conference schedule is nearly complete. Five games have been announced, the Huskies will host Nevada and Saint Louis and they’ll meet Seattle University at KeyArena.
Washington needs 4-5 games to complete the non-conference schedule and they will likely be played at Hec Ed.
Here’s a look at the schedule. (Times TBA)
