Madison Square Garden
As part of their recently announced 2011-2012 schedule, Washington will take a December trip to New York to play Duke and Marquette at Madison Square Garden.


The Marquette game will be televised on Dec. 6 on ESPN at 9:00 PM ET, so it’s right in the prime time spot giving the Dawgs additional national exposure.

Four days later on Dec. 10, the Huskies take on Duke in the fifth-ever matchup between the schools. CBS will televise the MSG matinee that begins at 9 AM (PT).

“Those two in New York, those are big-time games," head coach Lorenzo Romar said in a statement released by the school. "Those are outstanding games for our program to play two quality and tradition-rich programs like that inside Madison Square Garden."

The Huskies also play Nevada on Dec. 2 as part of this road trip, making the eight day trek the longest in UW history.

Washington opens the season hosting the Basketball Travelers Inc. (BTI) Classic at Edmundson Pavilion on Nov. 12-14. The weekend tournament brings Portland, Florida Atlantic and Georgia State to Seattle.

Other non-conference opponents include: Houston Baptist (Nov. 25), UC Santa Barbara (Dec. 16), South Dakota State (Dec. 19), Cal State Northdridge (Dec. 22) and Seattle University (Jan. 10). Washington also plays Seattle Pacific (Nov. 4) in an exhibition. All of the games are at Hec Ed.

And don’t forget, the Huskies will have to play the University of Colorado and the University of Utah with the PAC-10 expanding to the PAC-12.

Washington plays California, Stanford, Colorado and Utah just once during the regular season.
