Jim Calhoun's future may remain undecided for the time being but this much is certain: Come November 9 the Huskies' season officially begins. We know this because the schedule was released Wednesday and after two exhibition games during the first week of the month, UConn will travel to Germany to face Michigan State at Ramstein Air Base in the Armed Forces Classic. They'll return to Gampel to face Vermont before heading to St. Thomas to take part in the U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam.
You can view the entire schedule below but we'll highlight some of the key games below:
* Dec. 4: Faces N.C. State in the Jimmy V Classic, which will be played at Madison Square Gardens.
* Dec. 29: Begins a series with the Pac-10's University of Washington.
* Other non-conference games include: Stony Brook, New Hampshire, Harvard, Maryland-Eastern Shore, and Fordham.
* Jan. 1: Travels to Marquette for the first Big East game of the season. Seventeen more -- the remainder of the regular-season schedule -- will follow.
There's also this nugget from the school's website: "UConn will have at least 13 games against teams that reached the NCAA Tournament last season, raising that total to 14 should the Huskies meet New Mexico in the Paradise Jam."
