LAS VEGAS — Washington and Texas will become the first teams in any major U.S. sport to play a regular-season game in China when they meet in 2015.
The nonconference game will be played on Nov. 14, 2015
The Pac-12 also announced it will also send an all-star basketball team to China for a tour this August. The team, which will be coached by Oregon State’s Craig Robinson, will play two to three exhibition games in at least two Chinese cities.
The game and tour were created through the Pac-12’s Globalization Initiative. Since it was formed in 2011, the conference has sent two men’s teams and a women’s basketball team, a women’s all-star volleyball team, and a delegation of men’s basketball coaches to China for competitive exhibitions and clinics.
