The Bulldogs, who have three fifth-year seniors returning from a team that went 23-9 in forward Nate Grimes and guards Noah Blackwell and New Williams, will open the season Nov. 5 at Oregon and play non-conference road games at Cal State Northridge on Nov. 30, at Cal on Dec. 11 and at Cal Poly on Dec. 14. They also have a neutral-court game against Saint Mary’s on Nov. 20 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento. That game will be televised by ESPNU with an 8 p.m. tipoff.

Fresno State will play Winthrop in its home opener Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. at the Save Mart Center. It also has non-conference home games set with San Francisco on Dec. 23 and UC Riverside on Dec. 28.
