Weber State basketball announced its 2018 non-conference schedule Thursday, featuring a pair of in-state home games and another trip to the Bahamas.
With the 20-game conference schedule already released, the games complete WSU’s full 31-game slate for the 2018-19 season.
The season unofficially begins Nov. 1 with an exhibition against Chadron State, a Division-II school from Nebraska.
The regular season opens Tuesday, Nov. 6, with a road trip to San Diego, the first of a home-and-home series with the West Coast Conference school.
Division-I home games will bring BYU (Dec. 1), Utah Valley (Dec. 15) and Delaware State (Dec. 22) to the Dee Events Center. Home games also include non-Division-I teams Bethesda and Benedictine.
A previously announced tournament — the Junkanoo Jam in the Bahamas — will pit Weber State against San Jose State, Cal State Bakersfield and Central Michigan.
The final non-conference road game comes Dec. 5 at Fresno State. The Wildcats will play Utah State on Dec. 8 in this year’s edition of the Beehive Classic at Vivint Smart Home Arena.
Conference play begins Dec. 29 and Dec. 31 with a road trip to Eastern Washington and Idaho.
Weber State returns seniors Zach Braxton and Brekkott Chapman, as well as high-scoring junior Jerrick Harding. Randy Rahe returns for his 13th season as head coach.
