KU men's basketball to play home-and-home with Ohio State starting in 2011

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Kansas University's men's basketball team will begin a two-year home-and-home series with Ohio State starting in the 2011-12 season, KU senior associate athletic director Larry Keating said Thursday.

The Buckeyes would play at KU in '11-12, with KU returning the game to Columbus, Ohio, the following season.

Keating said the signed contract hadn't been returned yet, but both schools had agreed to play. An OSU official told the Columbus Dispatch the series had been scheduled.

KU will be traveling to the Maui Invitational in 2011 and also will play at the University of Southern California. Keating said the Jayhawks likely would be looking for just one more marquee game that non-conference season, likely to be played in Allen Fieldhouse.
