UNLV-Kansas agree to home-and-home basketball series

UNLV and Kansas have agreed to play a home-and-home series in men’s basketball starting in the 2014-15 season.

The Rebels visit Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kan., for the first meeting. The Jayhawks will play at the Thomas & Mack Center during the 2016-17 season.

“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.”

The Rebels opened practice on Monday in preparation for the 2013-14 season.
