What appears to be the final schedule of the 2012-13 season has been released for Cal basketball. It is a solid, strong schedule that should serve us well if the Pac-12 returns to form.

It isn't a bad non-conference slate (particularly compared to last year's dreary home schedule). Cal will host a very good UNLV team, a good Creighton team, and solid squads from Harvard and UC Santa Barbara. Cal will get their chance to play three of Drake, Drexel, Georgia Tech, Pacific, Rice, Saint Mary's and Xavier in the 76 Anaheim Classic, with plenty of good teams they should be favored against and should provide more RPI boosting. The Bears will go on the road to face Wisconsin (their toughest offseason test) as well as a contest against Denver (decent but definitely beatable).

As originally slated in the original Pac-12 basketball schedule template, Cal will switch their home conference games with Arizona (now road games) and Washington (now home games). More importantly, Cal will finish with five of seven games at home, including the UCLA/USC/Stanford triage (although separated by a few weeks). The Bears start with five of seven on the road, which is great since school is out of session.
