NACOGDOCHES, Texas (News release) - The Western Athletic Conference (WAC) has unveiled its 2022-23 conference matchups for men’s and women’s basketball. Teams representing the WAC are scheduled to compete in an 18-game conference slate during the upcoming basketball season, with each member institution set to play an equal nine league games at home and on the road.

The full 2022-23 WAC basketball schedules, including game dates and start times, will be released at a later date.

The WAC recently announced an innovative résumé seeding system that will be used by the conference to establish the fields for the 2023 WAC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championship tournaments. Using this new résumé seeding system, teams will receive more credit by playing stronger opponents throughout the season as opposed to a weaker strength of schedule.

The goal of the seeding model is to see WAC teams achieve higher NET rankings. The NET is the key metric utilized by the Division I basketball selection committees to determine at-large bids and seeding annually for the NCAA Tournament.

New Mexico State was one of three teams in the 2021-22 WAC men’s basketball standings to finish with a share of the conference regular-season championship and parlayed the top conference tournament seed into an automatic NCAA Tournament bid last March in Las Vegas. Stephen F. Austin swept the regular-season and tournament hardware as the women’s basketball champion of the WAC last season.
