The Pac-12 Conference office announced today the 2015-16 Pac-12 Conference men’s basketball television schedule, featuring 224 men’s contests telecast to national and regional audiences.

Pac-12 men’s basketball fans will get an early look at defending Pac-12 champion Arizona, as the Wildcats show-case their 2015-16 squad in the annual Red-Blue scrimmage on the Pac-12 Network Saturday, Oct. 17. The Pac-12 Network will also televise several exhibition contests, including Oregon, Oregon State, Utah and California, before tipping off the regular season on Nov. 13.

Of particular note for Bears fans, the Pac-12 Networks will broadcast Cal’s Nov. 9 scrimmage against Carroll College at 7 p.m., Pacific. Also on the docket is a Nov. 13 match-up between the Bears and visiting Rice on the Pac-12 networks, at 8:30 p.m., Pacific.

Cal will play host to UC Santa Barbara on Nov. 16, at 7 p.m., Pacific, and that game will be shown on the Pac-12 Network, as well. The Bears will not visit either USC or UCLA this season for the first time in decades.
