UNO will play Arizona and two teams that reached the NCAA tournament last season as part of its 2019-20 nonconference schedule.
The Mavericks open the season at Wichita State on Nov. 5. Their home opener will be against Midland on Nov. 7.
A trip to Arizona comes on Dec. 11. The Wildcats went 17-15 last season to snap a streak of six straight NCAA tournament appearances, including trips to the Elite Eight in 2014 and 2015.
UNO will face NCAA tournament teams from last season before opening Summit League play. The Mavs go to Saint Mary's on Dec. 1 and Montana on Dec. 21.
"This schedule will test our team so we're playing our best basketball in February and March," UNO coach Derrin Hansen said in a press release. "The challenges ahead, especially on the road, will strengthen us and set us up for success in conference play.
The conference schedule begins Dec. 29 when the Mavs host reigning regular-season conference champ South Dakota State.
