The Washington Huskies men’s basketball team released its non-conference schedule Thursday, with a meeting against their fellow Huskies and three-time NCAA champion UConn headlining the slate.

The battle of the Huskies will take place Dec. 22 in Seattle, though the teams could also meet on the second day of the 2K Sports Classic at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 22. Also in the 2K Sports Classic, Washington will open Nov. 21 against Indiana. Depending on the results of the first day of play, UW will face either Connecticut or Boston College in the finals or consolation finals of the two-day tournament.

In-state opponents include Central Washington (Nov. 6) and Seattle University (Nov. 10), both at home at American Airlines Arena. Montana (Nov. 26), Long Beach State (Nov. 30), Idaho State (Dec. 14), Mississippi Valley State (Dec. 27) and Hartford (Dec. 29) will all also play the Huskies in Seattle.

Washington will travel to San Diego State on Dec. 8 and Tulane in New Orleans Dec. 17 for their only true road non-conference games.
