ESPN GameDay set for 2012 basketball visit to Tucson

Rece Davis (right) is the host of College GameDay for ESPN.

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
Feb. 18: Ohio State at Michigan
Feb. 25: Syracuse at Connecticut
Mar. 3: North Carolina at Duke or Texas at Kansas
