Western Michigan's basketball schedule will provide a few tough tests in 2012 with matchups against Duke and Gonzaga on the Broncos schedule.
The Broncos will open the Puerto Rico Tip-off against Temple on November 17th. They also play at Gonzaga on November 26th and make a trip to Durham, North Carolina to face Duke on December 30th.
WMU has short road trips scheduled against the University of Detroit on December 8th and will host local MIAA basketball powerhouse, Hope College on November 30th.
The Broncos will take on at least five teams (Temple, Gonzaga, Oakland, Duke, and Akron) that made it to the NCAA Tournament in 2010. In addition to those teams, the Broncos could play as many as six other teams that reached postseason play last season.
