ESPNU to televise KU basketball at World University Games

Advertisement

Night owls and early risers, rejoice.

Fans in the United States will be able to watch the Kansas men's basketball team on ESPNU during this week's World University Games in Gwangju, South Korea.

The 14-hour time difference from Korea to Kansas means that the Jayhawks' first pool play game will air Friday at 10 p.m. CDT.

Other games may begin as late as 1 a.m. or as early as 4 a.m., but all will be on an ESPN network and available through the WatchESPN app, ESPN announced Monday.

KUsports.com's Bobby Nightengale and Mike Yoder are with the team in Korea and will also bring you live coverage from the court during the games.

The gold medal game really is the same night as the semifinals? That's brutal.

Good eye, Jonathan. That was my mistake. It's actually Monday, so they'll have over 24 hours to rest up.
