It’s never too early for college basketball news

Some college basketball news: The Huskies released their schedule yesterday (Times story is here, and the full schedule is here; the TNT story is here; the official Husky release is here) and it’s a lot tougher than last year. Not only will UW be in the Kennel to face GU on Sat., Dec. 9, it hosts LSU, which made the Final Four last season, Dec. 20 and plays at Pitt on Feb. 17.
The start of the Pac-10 schedule isn’t easy either, with the Huskies opening at USC on Dec. 28, then meeting UCLA on New Year’s Eve in LA. The first conference home game is Jan. 4 against Arizona.

Speaking of UW hoop: Spencer Hawes, the Huskies’ most heralded recruit, has finally started to put on weight. The 7-foot freshman-to-be from Seattle Prep has been relatively thin, but, according to a P-I story, that’s changed.

One last basketball note: The Maui Classic schedule has been released and it includes UCLA, Kentucky and Memphis. The 2006 version will be hard-pressed to top the 2005 Classic featuring the GU vs. Michigan State triple-overtime semi and the UConn last-second final victory over the Zags.
