Pac-12 makes changes to women’s basketball scheduling

Teams will play 20-game regular season conference schedule starting in 2022-23

The Pac-12 Conference on announced Monday that the women’s basketball conference schedule will increase to 20 games, with 10 home games and 10 road games for each team, starting with the 2022-23 season.

The changes mirrors that of the men’s basketball season schedule, which also made a change to 20 regular season conference games starting with the 2020-21 season.

For the 2021-22 season, the Pac-12 will play one last 18-game regular season schedule, rounding out the 10-year rotation.

“We are constantly evaluating ways to elevate Pac-12 women’s basketball and strengthen the league’s stature,” said Pac-12 senior associate commissioner Teresa Gould in a statement. “With the depth of talent in the Conference, adding two quality games to the league schedule will help Pac-12 programs prepare for the rigors of postseason play and support the sustained success of the Conference in the NCAA Tournament. A 20-game Conference schedule will also provide fans of Pac-12 women’s basketball additional opportunities to enjoy meaningful matchups both in person and on television.”

The Pac-12 tournament to conclude the women’s season also saw an announced change, as Saturday will now be an open date — meaning semifinal winners will get a rest day before a Sunday championship game.
