UNLV and Kansas have agreed to a home-and-home basketball series the two schools announced Thursday.
The Runnin’ Rebels will visit famed Allen Fieldhouse during the 2014-15 season while the Jayhawks will make the return trip to the Thomas & Mack Center in 2016-17.
“We are very excited to start this series with Kansas,” UNLV head coach Dave Rice said. “Kansas has one of the most successful, storied programs in college basketball history. Adding the Jayhawks to our schedule is consistent with our philosophy of playing a very competitive nonconference schedule.”
Kansas has never lost in four previous meetings against UNLV. The teams last met in Omaha in 2008 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament with the Jayhawks scoring a 75-56 victory en route to the national championship.
