Games against two Final Four teams and a season-opening, four-team tournament highlight the 2006-07 Husky home slate.
The Huskies play 10 games against 2006 NCAA Tournament competitors. Nineteen of 30 regular-season games will be played at Bank of America Arena where UW posted a 17-2 record in 2006. Washington opens the season with an exhibition game, Nov. 3 against Saint Martin's from Lacey, Wash.
The regular season begins on the earliest date ever with the opening round of the three-day Basketball Travelers Classic that runs Nov. 12-14 at Bank of America Arena.
The UW-hosted tournament features a four-team field in a round-robin format. The Huskies have a first-round matchup with Pepperdine, the school at which Romar began his head coaching career in 1996. Northern Iowa, a 2006 NCAA Tournament competitor, and Nicholls State square off in the other half of the first-day doubleheader.
Those three tournament dates begin a stretch of seven straight home games for Washington, matching last year's start as the school's longest season-opening homestand since 1945.
Highlighting the non-conference home slate is a Dec. 20 meeting with Final Four qualifier LSU from the Southeastern Conference. On Dec. 16, Portland State plays at Bank of America Arena. The Vikings are coached for the second season by Ken Bone who served as an assistant for three years on the Washington staff from 2003-05.
The Huskies return two starters from the 2006 team that registered a 26-7 record, made its third consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and advanced to the Sweet 16 for the second straight season. Those returning starters, sophomores Jon Brockman and Justin Dentmon, will be joined by one of the nation's best recruiting classes.
Season and single game tickets are also available for Husky women's basketball.
