Seven-foot centers Cory Reader and Bryant Reeves will square off Nov. 23 when the BYU basketball team opens the 1994-95 season against Big Eight power Oklahoma State at the Great Alaska Shootout.

Reader redshirted last year for BYU while Reeves led the Cowboys to the NCAA Tournament.Cougar fans will have three chances to preview the team at home, beginning with the annual Varsity Preview on Nov. 8 and exhibition games with High Five America (Nov. 16) and a yet-to-be-determined foreign team (Nov. 19).

Besides the 18-game Western Athletic Conference schedule, BYU plays 12 non-conference games (the three contests in Alaska don't count toward the 27-game maximum). The Cougars have five home games in December as well as in-state games that month at Utah State and Weber State.

The WAC Tournament shifts from the Delta Center to Albuquerque, but if BYU wins the league tournament it would play in Salt Lake for NCAA first-round action.
