The Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series is a set of college basketball games matching teams from the Big 12 Conference and the Pac-10 Conference. Started in 2007, it is primarily a way to guarantee top flight competition for both conferences and garner more recognition for the level of play of both leagues in basketball. This series mirrors the ACC–Big Ten Challenge. There is a "designated" four-day window for the main part of the series matchups and a few other matchups in November and late December. Because there are more teams in the Big 12, two teams from the Pac-10 will play twice against Big 12 teams.[1] The series will come to an end after the 2010-11 season. [2]
