This news came across my e-mail last night, so I thought I'd pass it along. 

The Big 12 Hardwood Series continues on in 2009-2010, and will feature 12 games between Pac-10 and Big 12 opponents. The series will be in its third year after starting competition during the 2007-08 season.

Last season, the two leagues split the Hardwood Series outings, 6-6. In all games played between the two conferences during 2008-09, the Big 12 held a 10-7 edge. The Pac-10 holds a 13-11 advantage in the first two years of the Hardwood Series. A season ago, the 12 contests averaged more than 10,000 fans and in two years games from the event have seen 244,029 fans go through the turnstiles.

The Beavers have been matchup up with Iowa State in the first two years of the Hardwood Series. in 2007-08, the Beavers lost 71-64 in overtime at Gill Coliseum. This past year, the Beavers lost 63-50 in Ames, Iowa. 

Drawing a matchup with the Buffalos isn't exactly an improvement for Oregon State. Colorado finished last in the Big 12 this season with a 1-15 conference record, and 9-21 overall.
