Utah basketball releases full 2011-12 schedule

The Utes have finalized their upcoming schedule for the 2011-12 basketball season and there have been some interesting developments.

Utah and Utah State won't meet this season - though the Utes keep their series with Weber State and BYU alive.

With BYU and Utah now non-conference opponents, it's unlikely the two will schedule each other twice (home and home) in a season - something indicated on this year's schedule, as the Utes host the Cougars with a planned return trip to Provo next season (I can assume, at least). 

Utah's game against Weber will be played up in Ogden, continuing the rivalry with the Wildcats. 

The home schedule, at least in preseason play, isn't anything remarkable. Outside that game with BYU, the Utes host San Diego Christian College, Montana State (hey, in football too), Cal State Fullerton, Idaho State and Portland. Of course, for a team that struggled greatly last season, the lack of big-named opponents should help in at least producing some wins. 

Beyond playing in Ogden, the Utes will also travel to take on Boise State, Fresno State and also play in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament - which consists of Florida State, UConn, Central Florida, College of Charleston, Harvard, Massachusetts and North Carolina of Asheville - a clear improvement over the remainder of the preseason schedule.
