The Pac-12 released the weekly pairings and site designations for its first-ever 20-game men’s basketball schedule on Thursday.
Here’s how the Arizona Wildcats’ conference schedule shakes out:
- Dec. 2 (Wed): vs. Colorado
- Dec. 19 (Sat): at Stanford
- Dec. 30-Jan. 3: at Washington/Washington State
- Jan. 6-10: vs. UCLA/USC
- Jan. 13-17: at Oregon/Oregon State
- Jan. 20-24: at ASU
- Jan. 27-31: vs. Cal/Stanford
- Feb. 3-7: at Colorado/Utah
- Feb. 10-14: vs. Oregon/Oregon State
- Feb. 17-21: at USC/UCLA
- Feb. 24-28: vs. Washington/Washington State
- March 6-7: vs. ASU
Note that the Wildcats do not play at Cal and do not host Utah due to the Pac-12’s imbalanced schedule.
The game times and broadcast information will be announced at a later date, but all 120 conference games will be televised by either Pac-12 Network, ESPN/2/U, FOX/FS1 or CBS.
Fans will not be permitted at games until at least January due to Pac-12 rules.
Arizona’s non-conference schedule hasn’t been released yet, but it is expected to include a multi-event against Grambling State and Sam Houston State as well as previously-scheduled home games against NAU, Montana, Cal State Bakersfield, Cal Baptist and Northern Colorado (though everything is subject to change).
The Wildcats will NOT be playing at Illinois or Gonzaga or in the Preseason NIT as originally planned.
UA head coach Sean Miller said on media day that Arizona will play all of its non-conference games at home in order to cut travel costs, limit safety risks amid the pandemic, and reduce the learning curve for its 10 newcomers, seven of whom are playing college basketball for the first time.
