Pac-12 announces weekly pairings for ASU, UA men’s basketball
The Pac-12 announced its weekly pairings for its men’s basketball 2019-20 conference season on Monday.
The Arizona schools will only play Colorado and Utah once this year with each game on the road.
Two schools ASU and Arizona won’t be seeing on the road this season is California and Stanford.
Previously, Arizona State and Arizona did not host UCLA or USC last season and did not travel to Washington and Washington State. This season they will be doing both.
