The Aggies are putting the final touches on their 2012-2013 basketball schedule, and anticipate on releasing it soon.
Here are a few things to look for:
* The anticipated matchup against USC isn't going to happen this season, as the Trojans have pushed the beginning of the series back a season. As a result, Utah State is looking for another game, on the road, in the November 28th range. This road matchup would be a regional one, and it would be against a good opponent, not just a "scheduled" win.
* Once the schedule is completed, look for it to be released in the next couple of weeks.
* St. Mary's, BYU, and Weber State are all expected to be on the schedule.
Playing the Gaels will mean the return of James Walker to the Spectrum, once a highly touted USU recruit who left the program on acrimonious terms following the completion of his freshman season.
* Southern Illinois, one a mid-major power, headlines the Gossner Tournament field in late December.
