BOULDER The final touches to the 2019-20 women's basketball scheduler were finalized as the Pac-12 Conference announced its full slate of games on Thursday.
For the first time in Pac-12 history, all 108 conference games will be televised. Colorado will appear across the Pac-12 Networks a total of 18 times in the regular season. All 11 Pac-12 Tournament games will be televised. The Pac-12 Network will broadcast every round leading up to the championship which will air on ESPN.
The fresh-faced Buffaloes will look to improve on its 12-18 season from a year ago. Colorado will be led by lone senior Quinessa Caylao-Do. The 2019-20 Buffs have just three upperclassmen, joined by Mya Hollingshed and Annika Jank.
CU's start to the regular season comes on Nov. 10 when the Buffs host New Jersey Institute of Technology. Before the opener, Colorado will play an exhibition game against Regis (Nov. 4).
Home games against Wisconsin (Nov. 14) and Denver (Dec. 12) also highlight CU's six-game home non-conference slate. CU will travel to regional opponents Wyoming (Nov. 17) and Colorado State (Nov. 22). The Buffs will also be on the road at Xavier (Dec. 6) and matchups against UAB and Tulane at the Tulane Classic in December.
Colorado, as previously announced by the conference, starts Pac-12 play with three straight road games. The Buffs will be at Utah (Dec. 29) and then swing through Oregon (Jan. 3) and Oregon State (Jan. 5). CU's first home conference games will be against Southern California (Jan. 10) and UCLA (Jan. 12).
The Buffs remaining home-draw includes Utah (Jan. 17), Oregon State (Jan. 30), Oregon (Feb. 1), California (Feb. 14), Stanford (Feb. 16), Arizona State (Feb. 21) and Arizona (Feb. 23).
CU's one-off opponents this season are the Washington and Arizona schools. CU will visit the Palouse to take on the Cougars (Feb. 7) and then move onto Seattle to face the Huskies (Feb. 9).
Colorado will finish the regular season in southern California for the second consecutive season. The Buffs will be at UCLA (Feb. 28) and then USC (Mar. 1).
The 2020 Pac-12 Women's Basketball Tournament returns to Las Vegas. The tournament will switch venues, taking place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, Mar. 5-8.
