Believe it or not, basketball season is just over 2 weeks away.
The Cougar men will start their season with an exhibition game against Lewis & Clark State in Pullman on October 30th, while the Cougar women also tip-off against Lewis & Clark State on November 8th. But if you can't wait that long to get your fix of Josh Hawkinson or Mariah Cooks, then the Pac-12 Network has you covered.
The Network's coverage of Pac-12 basketball media day starts tomorrow when the women's basketball teams take the stage. Their media day special airs at 10 am on all 7 networks.
