BYU will tip off the 2021-22 West Coast Conference basketball season on New Year’s Day at Portland as the league released the full 16-game schedule for all 10 teams Wednesday.

The Cougars’ home opener will be Jan. 6 against Pacific. BYU hosts Saint Mary’s on Jan. 8 and visits Gonzaga on Jan. 13. The Cougars entertain Gonzaga on Feb. 5 and will visit Saint Mary’s on Feb. 19.

Specific game times and television details for each contest will be announced at a later date.

As part of its 16-game WCC schedule, BYU will play San Diego and Santa Clara only one time each — at home against San Diego and on the road against Santa Clara.

The Cougars will face the seven other WCC programs twice, both home and away.

For the third straight year, the WCC will feature a 16-game schedule rather than an 18-game slate to allow for more nonconference scheduling flexibility.

The league’s presidents and athletic directors put the scheduling initiatives in place in an attempt to enhance the national profile of the WCC’s 10 basketball programs and get more teams into the NCAA Tournament.

Below is the entire WCC schedule:
