FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State women’s basketball team will be nationally televised during conference play a record six times in 2012. That number leads the Mountain West, which released its conference schedule earlier this week.
In addition to the contest vs. in-state rival Colorado, which will be live on The Mtn. on Nov. 20, the Rams will have two games broadcast on The Mtn. during league play, both vs. new conference foe Boise State (Jan. 17 and Feb. 14). The remaining four will be televised on CBS Sports Network. CSU will play on CBSSN at home vs. Wyoming (Jan. 21), and on the road at San Diego State (Jan. 28), and will take on MW runner-up and WNIT participant TCU twice in a home-and-home series (Jan. 14 and Feb. 11).
After wrapping up its non-conference slate on Jan. 8 at Seattle University, Colorado State begins league play against the team that abruptly ended its season a little more than five months ago. The Rams will host Air Force on Jan. 11 at Moby Arena. Following the conference opener, the team will be on the road at TCU and Boise State and then returns home to host WNIT Sweet-16 qualifier Wyoming in the Border War. CSU will wrap up play in January at home vs. New Mexico (Jan. 25) followed by a road match at San Diego State.
To begin February, the Rams will end the first half of conference play at Moby vs. UNLV on Feb. 1 before traveling to Colorado Springs, Colo., for a second bout at Air Force on Feb. 4.
A new feature of the schedule this year with only eight teams in the conference is a universal bye week. No MW teams will see action Feb. 5-10, with games resuming Feb. 11.
After a short break, CSU will continue the second half of league play with two home contests, vs. TCU and Boise State. On Feb. 18, the team travels to Wyoming for the second installment of the Border War, followed by another road matchup at New Mexico on Feb. 22. The Rams finish the regular season with their final home game, vs. San Diego State on Feb. 25, before their final game on the road, at UNLV on Feb. 29.
