Pac-12’s sports decision leaves Kansas looking to fill schedule holes

Not only did the Pacific 12 Conference’s decision to move fall sports to the spring affect the high-profile sport of football, it also will be affecting early season basketball scheduling, as the Pac-12 will not be conducting sports events until January 1, 2021, at the earliest.

At the University of Kansas, that means Colorado and Southern California are out, with Athletic Director Jeff Long and Coach Bill Self now looking to fill the two holes suddenly created in the schedule.

USC was scheduled to travel to Lawrence, with former Big 12 rival Colorado slated to host the Jayhawks, both in mid-December.

The Jayhawks basketball schedule is expected to start November 10th in Chicago, Illinois, with Southern Utah at Allen Fieldhouse for KU’s first home game on November 13th.

Another event that was anticipated to include Kansas also includes the Pac-12’s UCLA Bruins.  The Wooden Legacy Tournament in Anaheim, California for late November is also in jeopardy, with the Bruins out, leaving KU, Georgetown, and Virginia.  On Wednesday afternoon, the Big East Conference, including Georgetown, announced the postponement of all fall sports as well.
