The Kansas Jayhawks will represent the United States this summer. The men’s basketball team will serve as Team USA in the World University Games, which is set to start on July 3 in Gwangju, South Korea. The 12-man roster for basketball is set to leave on June 28. Before that happens, Kansas will take on Team Canada for two exhibition games at the Sprint Center on June 23 and 26.
On the secondary market, Kansas vs Canada tickets have an average price of $104.97 across the two games. The game on June 23 currently has an average of $108.29 and a get-in price of $54. The Friday night game is the less expensive of the two with an average of $104.23 and a get-in price of $56.
Even as the World University Games are played by college players, there will not be NCAA rules during the basketball games. Instead, the games will be played under FIBA rules, which uses four 10-minute quarters and a 24-second shot clock.
Kansas basketball will resume play for the 2015-16 season at Allen Fieldhouse on November 4. The Jayhawks will host Pittsburg State, then Fort Hays State on November 10 and Northern Colorado on November 13. The Jayhawks will then head to Chicago to take on the Michigan State Spartans in the Champions Classic, which also includes a matchup between Kentucky and Duke.
