A new season of men’s college basketball tips off in November, and the Pac-12 Network announced their broadcast schedule for the 2017-18 season Tuesday.
The network’s coverage of the University of Arizona will start before non-conference play begins. They will air Arizona’s annual McDonald’s Red-Blue Game from the McKale Center on Friday, Oct. 20.
Once the real games begin, the Pac-12 Network will air 152 live games and 33 of them will feature Arizona and Arizona State men’s basketball. The Wildcats will appear 15 times and 18 of the Sun Devils’ games are scheduled to air live.
The regular season begins on Nov. 10, and the Pac-12 Network will televise 10 games that day, including Northern Arizona at Arizona 5 p.m. The first ASU game on the network will take place on Nov. 14 when the Sun Devils host San Diego State.
Other non-conference contests scheduled to air on the Pac-12 Network involving Arizona schools include St. John’s and ASU on Friday, Dec. 8, from Staples Center in Los Angeles, and Vanderbilt at Arizona State on Sunday, Dec. 17.
Once the non-conference portion of the schedule wraps up, 49 conference games will air on the Pac-12 Network. ASU and Arizona will open conference play against each other at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 30, from McKale Center in Tuscon and the Pac-12 Network will be there to broadcast the game live.
