Far West Classic says
The spirit of a legendary 40-year holiday basketball tradition will return in 2015-16 when Oregon State University and University of Portland team up to host the Far West Classic Invitational at Moda Center on Friday, December 18 and Saturday, December 19.

The two-day doubleheader will be played at the home of the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers and feature the West Coast Conference’s Portland Pilots against Weber State from the Big Sky Conference – and alma mater of Trail Blazers All-Star Damian Lillard – on Friday night, followed by Cal State Fullerton from the Big West Conference battling the Beavers from the Pac-12. Saturday will feature Cal State Fullerton facing Portland and the Beavers taking on Tulsa from the American Athletic Conference. The American, Pac-12 and WCC were all in the Top 10 in conference RPI last year. Preliminary tip-offs are set for 6 and 8 p.m.

The 2015-16 Far West Classic Invite will return the Beavers to playing annually in the state’s largest metropolitan city with more than 2.2 million people.


In addition to the Saturday match-ups at the Moda Center, the Oregon State women’s basketball team will begin the hoop-crazed day with a marquee match-up against traditional powerhouse Tennessee at Gill Coliseum in Corvallis.
