With the college basketball season now just about a month away, the Oregon State men’s basketball program released their full schedule for the upcoming 2018-2019 campaign.
The non-conference portion of Oregon State’s slate is headlined by the Dam City Classic match-up on December 15th in Portland against Texas A&M, a team expected to be a dark-horse contender in the SEC. The Beavers will also compete against a strong field in the Paradise Jam Tournament in the U.S. Virgin Islands and go on the road to play at Long Beach State and Saint Louis, all before the change of the calendar.
The Pac-12 portion of the team’s slate will begin on January 5th on the road at rival Oregon, for the first installment of the year’s Civil War series. The teams will clash once again on February 16th in Corvallis. However, five of the team’s first nine conference games are in daunting road environments, which include road trips to Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah.
The team’s first official game will be November 6th at home against UC-Riverside. Previous to that, Oregon State will have a pre-season exhibition contest against NAIA school Montana Tech at Gill Coliseum on October 27th.
