Colorado Springs, Colo. -- San José State's 18-game regular season Mountain West schedule was announced by the conference this week. The initial schedule release has the Spartans hosting two nationally televised contests on ESPN3 -- February 24 versus San Diego State and March 7 versus UNLV.
"The Mountain West schedule presents some great challenges for our team again this year," said second-year Spartans head coach Dave Wojcik. "We are excited to take on these challenges now in our second season in the league."
The Aztecs along with New Mexico will be SJSU's one-time opponents in 2014-15. The Spartans will not host the Lobos, but travel to Albuquerque, N.M., to face the reigning MW Tourney champs in The Pit on January 31.
Three of the first four conference games will take place on the road. The Spartans' MW action begins on December 31 at Utah State. The home conference opener versus Wyoming will be on January 3.
San José State will play four of its last six games of the season in the Event Center, highlighted by marquee MW matchups against Boise State (3/4) and UNLV (3/7).
The nonconference portion begins November 14 with the season opener in The Event Center against Bethesda. It will be the first of three consecutive home games to open up the year before the team heads to Fullerton, Calif., for the prestigious Wooden Legacy.
"The Wooden Legacy continues to be one of the best tournaments in college basketball," Wojcik said. "It will be an honor to represent the Mountain West at this year's event, which features some top teams from across the nation."
All three of SJSU's games in the Wooden Legacy will be broadcast live on the ESPN family of networks. Opponents and game times for the event have not yet been announced.
The Spartans also travel to UC Davis (12/3) and host the crosstown rival Santa Clara Broncos (12/6) in nonconference games.
