Head coach Lorenzo Romar’s Washington Huskies will play nine home games, two neutral-site road contests and two true road games as part of its 2013-14 non-conference basketball schedule. The marquee match will be against the University of Connecticut Sunday, Dec. 22.
This will mark the fifth meeting with Washington and UConn, now a member of the newly formed American Athletic Conference. But it could become the sixth if the schools meet on the second day of the 19th annual 2K Sports Classic benefiting Wounded Warrior Project at Madison Square Garden.
Washington will square off against Indiana in the first day of the championship rounds at Madison Square Garden Thursday, Nov. 21.
The Huskies open up the non-conference portion of its schedule with an exhibition contest at Alaska Airlines Arena Wednesday, Nov. 6 against Central Washington before playing for real against Seattle University Sunday, Nov. 10. That will mark the sixth meeting between the two schools since they renewed their cross-town rivalry in 2009.
Washington welcomes UC Irvine (Nov. 14) and Eastern Washington (Nov. 17) for the on-campus portion of the 2K Sports Classic before heading to New York City for the third time in the last three seasons.
Returning to Alaska Airlines Arena, the Huskies face Montana State (Nov. 26) and Long Beach State before playing at San Diego State Dec. 8.
The Pac-12 schedule will be released on or about Sept. 1.
