    So I finally took a close look at the basketball schedule now that the football season is done - and safe to say - I don't understand the conference schedule.

    It was easy to understand the Big 12 schedule - home and away vs. North opponents every season then even split of away/home games (play twice each season) vs South opponents (play once each season.)

    But looking at Pac 12 conference schedule - yes we do play everyone once, but our home and homes are with Utah (expected due to trying to force rivalry/travel partner) but the other home and homes are against only 2 other South teams (Arizona/ASU) but FOUR other North opponents (Cal/Stanford/Whoregon/OSU) what gives?

    I would have thought that we would play more game against South Diviosn every year rather than North opponents. Not that I'm complaining - may make a boys weekend out of the March trip to OSU/Whoregon.

    There are no divisions in basketball, so it's kind of random who we get only once every year. From the Arizona Daily Star:

    Thanks for the link, Goose. I guess except for Utah, we should never know what to expect when it comes to playing everyone else. Oh well, the Oregon roadie could be fun!

    I don't remember where I saw it, but the schedule for, I believe, the full 10 year cycle was already published a while back. So if you can find that you will know exactly which teams are played home and home and which teams are played only once for each of the upcoming seasons.

    As long as Utah continues to suck in Basketball we won't mind playing our geographic rival twice every year.
