Pac-10 Announces Basketball Series With Big 12 Conference

Jan. 11, 2007

The Big 12 and Pacific-10 Conferences have announced an agreement to play a four-year men's basketball series of 12 annual games between the two leagues, starting with the 2007-08 season.

UCLA will host Texas on Sunday, Dec. 2, 2007 at Pauley Pavilion and will return the game in early December of 2008.

'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.
