Kansas University’s 2009-10 men’s basketball schedule has been finalized following Saturday’s release of the Basketball Hall of Fame Showcase matchups.

The Jayhawks will complete the Showcase with three games in Allen Fieldhouse. KU will meet Central Arkansas on Nov. 19, Oakland on Nov. 25 and Tennessee Tech on Nov. 27. All three games start at 7 p.m., and will be shown on Jayhawk TV and ESPN Full Court.

Other KU schedule confirmations on Saturday: The Dec. 9 game against Radford will be televised at 7 p.m. on ESPNU. ESPNU will also televise the Belmont at Kansas game at 8 p.m. on Dec. 29. The Cornell at Kansas game on Jan. 5 will be televised at 7 p.m. on Jayhawk TV, making eight total appearances on Jayhawk TV for the upcoming season.

Ok i cannot wait for the memphis Game . too bad cal wont be there to get it handed to him.

Hate to say it Hawkaholic but that Memphis game will be a shadow of what it would have been had Cal stayed. As it is it will be a real snoozer...KU by 25.

Is it "Late Night at the Phog" yet? (aka I can't wait either).

Hawkaholic22 10 years, 6 months ago

Well your probably right KUFan90. Considering they would have Cousins, Henry, and Wall, I'm not so sure we woulda won that game.

Excited about hoops schedule but equally pumped for football. Anyone know when Memphis tix go on sale?

This has got to be some kind of record.

KU plays four schools from the same state in the same season. Memphis, Univ. of Tennessee, Tennessee Tech and Belmont. I doubt if many school's schedules end up this way. Even in the Big 12, with the four Texas teams, the conference schedule of any one Texas team could only include their three in-state conference teams.

I guess we'll continue to own the State of Tennessee!

By putting two and two together, I thought the schedule had been figured out weeks ago? Oh well, any news is good news.

Someone needs to fix the date on the listing for the full scheduele it shows Nov 23 as the date for the Oakland game should be the 25th.

KUbsee69 10 years, 6 months ago

This article says the Oakland game is on November 25th, but the schedule listed for some time on the kusports.com ... Men's Basketball ... Schedule "tab" says it's on November 23rd.

Which is correct???

jacpac 10 years, 6 months ago

KU Athletics site shows it as the 25th!

Nick Krug, where art thou? That picture above makes me so wistful for your virtuoso shutterbugging. Say it ain't so, Nick. Say you'll come back and shoot the coming season.
