The Pac-12 Conference released its conference basketball pairings Tuesday morning, meaning we now know the order in which Arizona State will march through its conference slate. Exact dates as well as tip times will be announced at a later time.
After a brutal non-conference schedule, which includes Kentucky, Purdue, San Diego State and Northern Iowa, the Sun Devils will begin conference play with five of their first seven games on the road.
The Sun Devils will begin their Pac-12 schedule the week of Dec. 28-Jan.1 when they travel to the Bay Area to face Stanford and Cal. The following week, the Sun Devils will host Utah and Colorado before playing Arizona in Tucson in the middle of January.
The week of Jan. 18-22 ASU will travel to Southern California to play UCLA and USC before hosting the Washington schools the final week of January. The Sun Devils open the month of February by visiting the Oregon schools and the following week they will host Cal and Stanford.
To finish the regular season, ASU will play the Washington schools on the road (Feb.15-19), host the Southern California schools (Feb. 22-26) and host arch-rival Arizona the first week of March.
All 12 teams will then come together in Las Vegas for the 2016 Pac-12 Basketball Tournament, which will be held at the new T-Mobile Arena from March 8-11.
