Kansas Jayhawks 2008-2009 Schedule

The Jayhawks have released the schedule for the upcoming basketball season. As the KC Star notes:

The defending national champion Kansas Jayhawks will be young, but they won’t be untested entering Big 12 play.

Not after a nonconference slate that will feature seven teams that played in the NCAA Tournament last season — a list that doesn’t include CBE Classic participants Washington, Syracuse and Florida, which are likely to join KU Nov. 24-25 at the Sprint Center.

The highlights of KU’s nonconference schedule, announced Thursday, are trips to Arizona (Dec. 23) and Michigan State (Jan. 10) and a visit from Tennessee (Jan. 3). KU also will play host to tournament teams Coppin State, Kent State, Temple and Siena at Allen Fieldhouse.

So, I'm guessing you've penciled in the "Ws" for February 9 and March 1, eh?

What? No Idaho State or USF? I'm not quite sure how tested they'll really be... or is that rested? I can never remember. ;)

@ Sherman, don't be so hard on yourself. Yeah, the March 1 game is in the bag. But anytime the Jayhawks play Missouri in Columbia, the outcome is in doubt. Especially on a Big Monday.

@ Will, fortunately, teams like Coppin State and Jackson State will give the young Jayhawks the naps they'll no doubt need.
