"This series of games with the Pac-10 will showcase some of the best college basketball in the country," Big 12 Commissioner Kevin Weiberg said. "Our two conferences annually produce highly rated teams and multiple NCAA Tournament teams. This series will provide quality match-ups that will help to build the strength of our teams' non-conference schedules. We are excited to have the opportunity to do this with the Pac-10 in a way that allows all of our teams to participate."
The series will continue in 2008, with games slated for December 4-7. The
contests scheduled will be return games of the matchups from 2007, but may
not be scheduled for the same day of the week. The games in the series in
2009 will be played December 3-6, 2009, while matchups in 2010 will be
played December 2-5, 2010.
"We are pleased to make this scheduling arrangement with the Big 12
Conference and its members," Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen noted. "It will
enable both conferences to provide exciting, high-level basketball
competition. The games will spotlight college basketball in early December
and will be excellent programming for our television partners. I commend
the coaches of the two conferences for embracing the competition which will
enhance the power ratings of all participants."
Additional components of the series, including the name of the event,
television and sponsorship will be announced at a later date.
