SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference has announced the 16 conference matchups for each of its 10 men's basketball teams for the 2019-20 season. This is the second season the WCC will play a 16-game schedule after changes adopted by the WCC Presidents' Council as part of the Conference's Men's Basketball Enhancement Plan prior to the start of the 2018-19 season.
These schedule initiatives demonstrate the league-wide commitment by West Coast Conference Presidents and Athletic Directors to adopt an innovative approach to advance men's basketball on the national stage as a multiple NCAA bid Conference.
The matchups designate the 16-game home and away opponents for the upcoming season based on a Conference formula including 2017-18 team RPI and the 2018-19 team NET rankings, last year's West Coast Conference tournament seedings, and a spring survey of the league's 10 head coaches.
The regular-season WCC matchups for the 2019-20 season are listed below. Conference play will begin on Thursday, January 2, 2020. Specific dates and times for each game will be announced later this summer after the conference's league schedule is finalized.
Pacific will play home and road contests at Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine, Portland, Saint Mary's, San Diego, San Francisco, and Santa Clara. The Tigers will round out their conference schedule with a home game against BYU and a road game at Gonzaga.
The 2020 West Coast Conference Basketball Championships will take place March 5-10 at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
