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.
