LAWRENCE (AP) — Kansas will play Kentucky, Ohio State and maybe Duke too next season.
The Jayhawks, who lost six key members of the team that just went 35-3, could face as many as three defending regular-season champions.
In a non-conference schedule released on Sunday, Kansas will play Kentucky on Nov. 15 in the inaugural Champions Classic in Madison Square Garden. Duke will play Michigan State in the other game.
Ohio State, the Big Ten regular-season and tournament champion, visits Allen Fieldhouse on Dec. 10. On Dec. 22, the Jayhawks will travel to Los Angeles to play USC, which lost to Kansas 70-68 in Allen Fieldhouse last December.
Kansas will face 10 non-conference opponents who appeared in the 2011 postseason. The Jayhawks will also participate in the Maui Invitational in Hawaii, a field that includes Duke, UCLA, Georgetown, Memphis, Tennessee and Michigan. The Jayhawks will open the regular season against Towson on Nov. 11 in the first round of the Maui Invitational.
