Just 49 days remain before the Washington Huskies tip off the 2019-20 men’s basketball season with a Halloween night exhibition against Division II Western Washington.

Coach Mike Hopkins will have a good understanding of his revamped team after the first three games, which includes a trip to Anchorage, Alaska, to face Baylor on Nov. 8 and a tough test in Toronto on Nov. 16 against Tennessee.

The defending Pac-12 champion Huskies, who lost four starters from last season’s team that finished 27-9 overall and 15-3 in conference, return to Seattle for seven straight games.

Gonzaga visits Alaska Airlines Arena on Dec. 8, which renews a bitter rivalry against UW’s cross-state nemesis.

The Huskies finish their nonconference schedule with three games in the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu on Dec. 22-25.

Washington begins the Pac-12 schedule at home against UCLA on Jan. 2 and USC on Jan. 5. The Huskies’ conference road opener is Jan. 9 at Stanford followed by a game Jan. 11 at California.


Returning to Seattle, UW hosts Oregon State on Jan. 16 and Oregon on Jan. 18.

The following week, the Huskies are on the road again for games at Utah on Jan. 23 and Colorado on Jan. 25.

Arizona comes to Seattle on Jan. 30 followed by Arizona State on Feb. 1.

Three straight road games begin at Washington State on Feb. 9 followed by USC on Feb. 13 and UCLA on Feb. 15.

UW’s final homestand includes Stanford on Feb. 20, California on Feb. 22 and Washington State on Feb. 28.

The Huskies finish the regular season at Arizona State on March 5 and Arizona on March 7.


Due to the Pac-12’s unbalanced schedule, Washington will not host Utah and Colorado. The Huskies will also miss trips to Oregon and Oregon State.

Washington plays 18 games on national television, including 11 on ESPN networks, six on FS1 and once on CBS. The remainder of UW’s games will be televised by the Pac-12 Networks.

Here’s a look at UW’s schedule.
