UW women’s basketball team unveils 2021-22 schedule

The Tina Langley era for Washington Husky women’s basketball begins on November 12 with an opening game against San Diego followed by a non-conference game against NAU on November 14 at Alaska Airlines Arena.

The new UW coach has set up a formidable non-conference schedule highlighted by a November 20 home game against ACC Central Louisville, which went 26-4 last season and s ‘qualifies for the NCAA 2021 Elite Eight tournament.

The Huskies are heading to Bimini, Bahamas for Thanksgiving and a pair of games in the Goombay Splash. UW plays in VCU on November 25 and in North Carolina on November 26 or 27.

Last season, the Rams won the Atlantic-10 tournament and advanced to the first round of the NCAA tournament. The Tar Heels also finished in the first round of the NCAA tournament after posting a 13-11 record.

Washington returns home on December 10 for a game at the University of Seattle, rival Crosstown.

UW closes the non-conference schedule with the Husky Classic and games against Eastern Washington on December 18 and Nevada on December 20.

Langley and the Huskies begin the Pac-12 season the week of Dec. 21 at home against defending NCAA tournament champions Stanford and California.

Washington will play its next four road games in Arizona and Arizona State (Jan. 7-9), followed by a trip to Los Angeles to face UCLA and USC (Jan. 14-16).

Oregon and Oregon State visit Hec Ed Jan. 21-23, and UW play two games against interstate rival Washington State next week (Jan. 28-30) in Seattle and Pullman.

The Huskies will play in Colorado and Utah February 4-6.

UW will host UCLA and USC February 11-13, and Arizona and Arizona State February 18-20.

Washington wraps up the regular season at Stanford and Cal from February 24-26.

The Pac-12 will release dates, times and TV news at a later date.

Due to the league’s unbalanced schedule, UW will not host Colorado and Utah and will not travel to Oregon and the State of Oregon.

Langley, who recorded a 126-61 record in the previous six years at Rice, takes over a UW team that finished 11e in the Pac-12 at 3-13 and was 7-14 overall.
