Women's college basketball: Pac-12 announces 2019-20 weekly pairings

Relive the Baylor Lady Bears' journey to claim the 2019 DI national championship

SAN FRANCISCO  Weekly pairings and sites for the 2019-20 Pac-12 women’s basketball campaign were released, the Conference office announced today. League play gets underway the week of December 23, 2019 and culminates with the 2020 Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament in Las Vegas, March 5-8 at Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The schedule reflects the 18-game slate which determines the seedings at the Pac-12 Tournament. In addition to opponents being identified, home/away weeks have been designated. Specific dates and times for each game within the week have yet to be determined and will be announced at a later date after television selections have been finalized.

CONFERENCE SCHEDULES: SEC announces 2020 women's basketball schedule 

Tipoff of league play begins no later than Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019. The opening week highlights traditional rivalry matchups between Arizona and Arizona State in Tempe; UCLA and USC at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles; Washington and Washington State in Pullman; and Colorado and Utah in Salt Lake City.

The Battle of the Bay, pitting California and Stanford, is slated for week two (Jan. 9-12, 2020), and the Civil War, which sold out in both Eugene and Corvallis in 2019, takes place during week four of the Conference play (Jan. 23-26, 2020).

Defending Pac-12 Tournament Champion Stanford and NCAA Women’s Final Four participant and league regular-season champion Oregon meet twice this season during week three (Jan. 16-19, 2020) and again during week eight (Feb. 20-23, 2020). WNIT Champion Arizona gets its first stab at home-court advantage in league action during week two (Jan. 9-12, 2020), hosting the Ducks and Oregon State. The Wildcats set the Conference all-time attendance mark in the WNIT final, drawing a sold-out crowd of 14,644.

The Pac-12 is coming off another unforgettable season which had the Ducks in the national semifinal, marking the 10th time in 12 years a league team has advanced that far. Six teams earned NCAA Tournament teams for the third-straight year, going a combined 11-1 in the first two rounds to record the best winning percentage by a conference since 1997. Since 2016, Pac-12 teams have won more NCAA Tournament games (55) than any other conference and have posted the best winning percentage (.696) of any Power 5 league.
