UW skips Colorado, Utah trips next season

A handful of Pac-12 teams released their 2012-13 conference schedules and due to the unbalanced schedule, Washington will not play at Colorado or Utah.
Missing a trip to Boulder, Colo. isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The Buffaloes won the conference tournament title and they were intimidating at home posting an 8-1 record against league opponents and 14-2 overall.
CU destroyed the Huskies 87-69 at Coors Events Center.
Colorado figures to be one of the Pac-12 favorites, while Utah is rebuilding and will likely be picked to finish near the bottom in the conference. The Huskies won 57-53 at Utah last season.
Washington will also not host California and Stanford this season, but will return to the Bay Area for a pair of games after missing the trip last season.
With just one game against Cal, Stanford and Colorado, UW loses three opportunities to play against teams expected to contend for a NCAA tournament berth. It also puts pressure on the Huskies to perform well in the non-conference because seemingly they will have fewer chances to gain ground in the RPI when the Pac-12 season begins.
The Huskies released the non-conference schedule, but most of their conference dates remain a mystery.

A combo guard, he’s just out there to contribute to the cause on each side of the ball. ”
