Kansas University’s women’s basketball team will play eight of its 11 regular-season nonconference games at home next season.
Including two home exhibition games, KU will play 10 of 13 at Allen Fieldhouse before the Big 12 season begins.
“We’re looking forward to starting our second year at Kansas and getting back in the gym with our student-athletes,” coach Brandon Schneider said Wednesday, when the nonconference slate was released. “Now that the schedule has been announced, it means that our season is right around the corner, and we have another challenging nonconference slate that will prepare us for what will be another great Big 12 Conference season.”
Kansas will play Fort Hays State (Oct. 30) and Washburn (Nov. 6) in exhibitions.
KU will travel to Memphis (Nov. 20), Creighton (Nov. 30) and Alabama (Dec. 4).
The Kansas men’s and women’s programs will participate in the 32nd-annual Late Night in the Phog extravaganza on Oct. 1 at Allen Fieldhouse.
