Washington State University athletics released the Men's basketball non-conference schedule Monday morning.

The Cougars will host two exhibition games to begin the season against Lewis-Clark State on October 30, and a week later will face Pacific-Oregon. They will open the season on November 13 against Northern Arizona before taking on Idaho State a week later. On November 6 the Cougars will have a 'Flashback Friday' game where they will play in Bohler Gym, the home of Cougar Volleyball as well as the previous home of Cougar Basketball.

Head Coach Ernie Kent and the rest of the Cougars will get two more home games (Cal State Los Angeles and Texas Southern) before hosting a Gonzaga team that finished the season ranked 6th in the USA Today Coaches Poll in Pullman on December 2. The team will finish up their 8 game home-stand against Portland State December 6.

For their first away game the Cougars will be driving 8 miles to Moscow to take on the Vandals. After the "away" game against Idaho they will be coming back to Pullman to take on a pair of Texas schools in UTEP and Texas State.

The Cougars will then head to the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic from December 22-25 in Honolulu, Hawaii before starting conference play the first week of January.
