It all begins at 4:30 p.m. PT with the Pac-12 Basketball Pregame Show, followed by Arizona hosting Mount St. Mary’s and Colorado taking on Drexel at 5:00 p.m. PT.
The 7:00 p.m. PT window features five games across the six regional networks – Chicago State-Arizona State, Alcorn State-Cal, Rice-Oregon State, Ball State-Utah and South Carolina State-Washington – plus a studio-based whip-around show on the national network.
The third and final window at 9:00 p.m. PT consists of Oregon hosting Coppin State, Wofford at Stanford and the UCLA Bruins hosting Montana State, followed by the Pac-12 Basketball Postgame Show putting a bow on all the action.
In addition to the specialized whip-around coverage from 7:00-9:00 p.m. PT, during the 5:00 and 9:00 p.m. window, Pac-12 Network will also offer live look-ins of the games across Pac-12 regional networks during breaks.
