Kansas will open the 2013-14 season with home exhibition games against Pittsburg State (Oct. 29) and Fort Hays State (Nov. 5).
For the third-straight year KU will have home-and-home meetings against all nine Big 12 Conference foes. Besides Kansas, other conference teams that participated in the 2013 NCAA Tournament included Iowa State, Kansas State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Baylor won the 2013 NIT. The Big 12 traditionally releases that schedule in July.
Season ticket sales for KU’s 18 home games, the 17 in Allen Fieldhouse and the Dec. 14 game against New Mexico in the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo., will go on sale May 9 at 9 a.m. To order tickets fans must be active members of the Williams Education Fund, which can be done by making a minimum gift pledge of just $100.
KU has led its conference in home attendance each of the last 27 seasons, dating back to the 1986-87 season. The Jayhawks will look to capture a 10th consecutive Big 12 regular-season championship in 2013-14.
