FSN Classics Presents: Best of College Hoops

As a result of the success of FSN's newest local programming venture, FSN Classics, the series has been extended and will now feature an unforgettable collection of local college basketball games. The newest edition of FSN Classics begins on Tuesday, January 17th at 8pm and games will air weekly through the month of February.

FSN Classics was launched in September 2005 and the first 11 weeks of the program featured a selection of the region's best collegiate football games on record, followed by two more weeks of Classic prep football championship games. Following the college hoop series, FSN will launch a new collection of Mariners Classics.

With FSN Classics, the network is providing viewers the opportunity to re-live the most memorable games over the past fifteen years from FSN's vault of game telecasts. The college hoops series schedule of FSN Classics is as follows:

December 1, 2004: Gonzaga Continues Dominance Over Washington, Beats Huskies for Seventh Consecutive Time
The 14th-ranked Huskies had opened the season 4-0 and were looking to establish themselves as the preeminent college hoops program in the state of Washington, but instead found themselves tagged with a 99-87 defeat before a sellout crowd of 6,000 in Gonzaga's new McCarthey Center. Same teams, new arena, same outcome – the seventh consecutive loss for the Huskies to their in-state rival.

March 11, 1995: In his final game as a Beaver, Brent Barry leads OSU to OT Win Over USC
One of the most popular players in the program's history, future NBA pro Brent Barry ends his career at Oregon State by helping lead the Beavers to a thrilling 83-81 overtime win over the USC Trojans.

Tuesday, January 31, 2006 - 8:00PM Pacific

March 14, 2003: Luke and Luke (Ridnour and Jackson) Lead Oregon to Pac-10 Tournament Title
Behind 18 points and nine assists from Luke Ridnour and another 17 points from Luke Jackson, the Oregon Ducks defeated USC 74-66 to capture their first Pac-10 tournament title. The fifth-seeded Ducks became the lowest seed to win and the only other champion besides Arizona and UCLA in the tournament's six-year history. The victory also guaranteed Oregon its second straight appearance and third in four years at the NCAA Tournament.

November 24, 1997: Gonzaga Stuns #4 Clemson to Win Top of the World Classic
In an amazing shooting display, Gonzaga drained 68 percent of their shots, including 74 percent from three-point range, for an 84-71 victory over fourth-ranked Clemson to win the Top of the World Classic in Fairbanks, Alaska. Led by Matt Santagelo's 19 points and with contributions from Richie Frahm and Quentin Hall, the win marked the first victory for the Zags over a Top-10 team.

January 17, 2004: Nate Robinson's Buzzer Beater Propels UW to an OT Win Over OSU and Signals the Start of the Huskies' Emergence
Nate Robinson scored 25 points and hit a game-tying 3-pointer at the end of regulation as Washington stormed back from a 16-point second-half deficit to defeat Oregon State 103-99 in overtime. The win seemed to spark a new confidence in the Huskies' program, which has gone 56-11 since that game.

Tuesday, February 21, 2006 - 8:00PM Pacific

December 4, 2005: Huskies Finally Get Best of Gonzaga in Classic Win
In a game that will likely be remembered as a local classic – perhaps more so for Husky fans than Zags -- the 18th-ranked Huskies narrowly defeated Gonzaga 99-95 for their first win since the Todd MacCulloch era, thus ending their seven-game losing streak to their sixth-ranked rivals from Spokane.

Tuesday, February 28, 2006 - 8:00PM Pacific

January 29, 2005: In Historic Upset, Cougs Defeat #11 Arizona in Tucson For the First Time Since 1986
With the Arizona Wildcats just having taken over the Pac-10 race with a huge win over the Washington Huskies only days earlier, not to mention the 38 straight wins over the Cougars spanning the past 19 years, few could have predicted that Washington State would walk in to the McHale Center and come away with a 70-63 victory over the nation's 11th-ranked team. Whether it was the result of an Arizona letdown or a prepared Washington State squad, the result was a classic game that won't soon be forgotten by Cougar fans.
