Huskies non-conference schedule announced

USA TODAY Sports

We know who we facin'.

Lorenzo Romar's non-conference schedule has been announced. The Washington Huskies will begin the season with an exhibition against Central Washington at Alaska Airlines Arena on Nov. 6. Their first "real" game will be four days later against cross-town rival Seattle University.

Meeting Seattle will be the sixth time the two teams have met since they renewed their rivalry in 2009. The 2K Sports classic then begins with the on-campus portion, with UW still facing a few more cupcakes before moving on. UC Irvine and Eastern Washington will come to town before the Dawgs head out to New York for the third time in three years.

Two years ago in the Jimmy V Classic Washington travelled to the famous Madison Square Garden where they lost to Marquette (my very first FanPost was about that game) and then subsequently lost to Duke. They also went deep into the NIT tournament that season (but different year), bringing them to New York again.

In New York they will face the Indiana Hoosiers followed by either Boston College or UConn.

After New York the Huskies return home to face Montana and an under the radar Long Beach State team that went to the Big Dance last year. After those, UW's first true road game will begin as they travel to face San Diego State on Dec. 8.

They will then play against Idaho State before heading out to face Tulane in New Orleans - the home of forward Jernard Jarreau. The Huskies like to schedule a game in the hometown of some of their players to show appreciation, and Jernard is the lucky player this year. Aziz N'Diaye got superstar treatment when Washington travelled all the way to Africa to visit his home country of Senegal.

A return to home to face UConn (for potentially the second time) then Mississippi Valley State and Hartford closes out the non-conference schedule. The Pac-12 schedule is set to be released on Sept. 1.

Cupcakes, tests, and lots of home games. This is about what Washington has given us the past several years. Maybe the schedule is a little bit tougher than years past, but not by much.
