The Arizona Wildcats basketball team will begin its Pac-12 schedule with a homestand against the Washington schools.

The Pac-12 has released next season’s conference slate, with Sean Miller’s team beginning with five of its first seven at home.

After opening against Washington (Jan. 2) and Washington State (Jan. 4), Arizona will go to Los Angeles for its first meetings against new coaches at UCLA (Jan. 9) and USC (Jan. 11). Those will be the only meetings of the regular season between UA and the L.A. schools.

The Wildcats then return home for three games — Arizona State (Jan. 18), Colorado (Jan. 23) and Utah (Jan. 25).

Here is the rest of the league schedule for the Wildcats, with five of the last seven on the road:

– Jan. 30, at Stanford
– Feb. 1, at Cal
– Feb. 6, vs. Oregon
– Feb. 8, vs. Oregon State
– Feb. 14, at Arizona State (awww… on Valentine’s Day)
– Feb. 20, at Utah
– Feb. 22, at Colorado
– Feb. 27, vs. Cal
– March 1, vs. Stanford
– March 6, at Oregon State
– March 9, at Oregon

The Pac-12 Tournament returns to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, to be held March 12-15.

Television demands could tweak some of the dates, so this schedule is still subject to change, with the start times and television network to be announced.

Here’s a look at the Cats’ non-conference schedule.
