Finding 'Cats on TV will not be hard in 2012-13
The Pac-12 Conference finalized its 221-game men's basketball television schedule for the 2012-13 season Wednesday, and 25 Arizona contests - not including the Diamond Head Classic or conference tournament - will air on either the Pac-12 Networks or ESPN's family of networks.
The Pac-12 Networks, alone, will air 150 games, including 142 during the regular season, across its seven channels. Also, it was announced that Hall of Famer and lifelong UCLA Bruin Bill Walton will join the network to provide color commentary for select games.
The Wildcats will open the season and make their Pac-12 Networks debut Nov. 11 against Charleston Southern.
Meanwhile, UA will make its first of 10 appearances on ESPN's networks this season Dec. 15 against Florida.
Also, not listed on the schedule, the Wildcats will open the Diamond Head Classic against East Tennessee State Dec. 22 on ESPNU. The tournament, which will run through Christmas, also will allow UA to play either Miami or site host Hawaii (Dec. 23), as well as one other school yet to be determined on Christmas Day.
Both the Pac-12 Networks and ESPN will broadcast the Pac-12 tournament, which will move this year from the Staples Center in Los Angeles to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The tournament will be played March 13-16.
The 'Cats will host their Red-Blue Game on Oct. 21 and play two exhibition contests against Humboldt State (Oct. 31) and Chico State (Nov. 6) before the season opener.
