ESPN has announced this season’s schedule for its traveling GameDay show for college basketball, and that will include a stop in Tucson for the Arizona Wildcats’ game against Washington on Jan. 28.
The teams will be hard-pressed, however, to play a better game than they did last season in McKale Center, when Derrick Williams swatted Darnell Gant’s last-second shot into the Zona Zoo. Arizona held on to win 87-86.
Hmmm … would Jan. 28 be a good time for another White Out at McKale?
Rece Davis will be the host of GameDay, joined by analysts Jay Bilas, Digger Phelps, Hubert Davis and Bob Knight.
(Zona Zoo: You can start working on the big cutout heads off all the ESPN guys, like, right now.)
Here is ESPN’s GameDay schedule:
Jan. 14: North Carolina at Florida State
Jan. 21: Louisville at Pittsburgh
Jan. 28: Washington at Arizona
Feb. 4: Kansas at Missouri
Feb. 11: Kentucky at Vanderbilt
