Washington will have 17 games on the Pac-12 Networks this season. The first is a nonconference finale against Texas A&M at Alaska Airlines Arena on Dec. 29 at 6pm. UW’s remaining TV games will be against conference opponents.
TAMU won the NCAA title in 2011 and reached the Elite Eight last season. The Aggies narrowly defeated the Huskies, 74-68, in Texas last year.
UW opens Pac-12 play at Arizona State (Jan. 3, 2015) and Arizona (Jan. 5, 2015). Both games will air live on the Pac-12 Networks.
The Huskies’ conference home-opener is against the Bay Area powers. But UW managed wins against both last season, handing Stanford its first road loss in a string of 62 conference road games. Washington won at Cal, 70-65, to end the 2013-14 regular-season.
The Cardinal gets its rematch at Alaska Airlines Arena at 7pm on Jan. 9, 2015. The Huskies host the Bears on Jan. 11, 2015 at 3pm. Both games can be seen live on the Pac-12 Networks.
The odd home-and-home week against Washington State is set for Feb. 20, 2015 at 7:30pm in Seattle and Feb. 22, 2015 at 1pm in Pullman. Last season the Cougars swept the Huskies in a season series for the first time since 1975, including 36 consecutive losses. WSU won in Seattle for the first time since January 1993.
Washington State will kick-off women’s hoops games on Pac-12 Networks with a matchup against Nebraska on Nov. 19 at Beasley Coliseum. WSU beat then-No. 10 Nebraska on the road last season.
Like the Huskies, which features one of the best backcourts in the country in senior Jazmine Davis and sophomore Kelsey Plum, the Cougs are one of the more intriguing teams entering the 2014-15 season after reaching numerous benchmarks last year.
WSU coach June Daugherty is in her seventh season, leading the Cougs to its first .500 season in conference play in 19 years and first postseason tournament since reaching the NCAA tourney in 1991.
Washington State opens conference play at Arizona on Jan. 3, 2015. Its conference home-opener is Jan. 9, 2015 at 5pm against Cal.
Due to unbalanced scheduling, UW and WSU will not host the desert schools and will not play at the LA schools.
The Pac-12 tournament is scheduled for March 5 through March 8, 2015 at KeyArena. The championship game will air on ESPN.
