We know where, we know about when, we just don’t know exactly when.

The schedule for the 2023-24 Pac-12 men’s basketball conference season was announced on Thursday, but no firm dates are set yet.

Week 1, which takes place the week of Dec. 27-31, Arizona/Arizona State visit northern California and take on the pairing of Cal/Stanford, meaning on one day the Wildcats will take on the Golden Bears and the Sun Devils will take on the Cardinal and the next day Arizona will take on Stanford while ASU will take on Cal.

There will be no love lost on Valentine’s Day week as the two rivals will face off in Tucson. The two teams will match up right before the end of the season during the week of Feb. 28.

The two teams wrap up the season in southern California the week of March 6-9 with a pairing at UCLA and USC. Arizona will start at UCLA and ASU will start at USC, and then the Sun Devils will face the Bruins and the Wildcats will face the Trojans.

All 120 Pac-12 games will be broadcast on either the Pac-12 Network, the ESPN family of channels, Fox or Fox Sports 1, or CBS.

The regular season will wrap up March 9 with the final conference tournament tipping off March 13 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
