Mizzou, KU Basketball To Play Exhibition Game For Hurricane Relief

Mizzou, KU Basketball To Play Exhibition Game For Hurricane Relief”

On Thursday, the Missouri athletics department confirmed a possible renewal of the Missouri-Kansas rivalry on October 22 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City as part of a benefit for hurricane relief efforts. Proceeds from the game will go to hurricane relief efforts.

If the two programs are able to get this done, it would appear to be a major step forward to actually seeing these long-time conference rivals return to actually playing real games against each other.

"The opportunity to make an impact on those suffering as result of the hurricanes, through the game of basketball, is a great opportunity for our program", Kansas coach Bill Self said.

The game would be more than a gathering between the former Big 12 rivals. "We both felt that this would be a great opportunity to impact others".

The two schools will split the approximately 18,000 seats in the Sprint Center; each athletics department will distribute its allotment. Tiger Scholarship Fund members will have the first opportunity to buy tickets from Mizzou's allotment. The game will not be televised or streamed, but KU and MU will broadcast it on their radio networks. A limited number of tickets for Mizzou students will be available for purchase starting Tuesday, Oct. 17.

The Jayhawks lead the all-time series 172-95, and won eight of the last 10 games between the schools. Both teams were ranked in the top five nationally the last time they played, with No. 4 Kansas beating No. 3 Missouri 87-86 in overtime at Allen Fieldhouse on February 25, 2012.

Following that season, the Tigers left the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference and Kansas dug in, refusing to play the Tigers in either football or men's basketball. "But I'm not interested in doing what's best for Missouri".

"Everybody deserves the right to do what is best for them".

The Jayhawks trailed by 19 points midway through that game and came all the way back to win in overtime, thanks to some clutch play by Thomas Robinson on both ends of the floor - including a monster block of Phil Pressey on the final play of regulation - and a ton of energy from the Allen Fieldhouse fans.
