A trip to Lawrence, Kan. to play the Kansas Jayhawks highlights the University of Toledo men’s basketball schedule.
The schedule, which was released Tuesday, features games against 10 teams that qualified for postseason play in 2013 as well as two games against rival Bowling Green. The meeting with Kansas, a No. 1 seed in last season's NCAA tournament, will be Toledo's final tuneup before Mid-American Conference play. The Rockets will visit venerable Allen Fieldhouse on Dec. 30.
The 2013-14 schedule, released today, shows the Rockets playing the Boilermakers on Nov. 17 and the Flyers on Dec. 22. Both opponents advanced to the second round of last year's NCAA tournament. “We’re thrilled to host two teams who not only made the NCAA Tournament, but also advanced to the second round," coach Tricia Cullop said in a statement. "Both games will be great measuring sticks for us. I hope our fans circle both those dates as “must-see” games.”
