2020-21 Non-conference Schedule



  • The non-conference portion of KU’s schedule has been released and it appears pretty stacked like usual.

    Nov. 10- Kentucky (Champions Classic, Chicago)

    Nov. 13- Southern Utah

    Nov. 16- Eastern Illinois

    Nov. 20- Stony Brook

    Nov. 26- Georgetown/UCLA/Virginia (Wooden Legacy, Anaheim)

    Nov. 27- Georgetown/UCLA/Virginia (Wooden Legacy, Anaheim)

    Dec. 3- Creighton

    Dec. 8- Omaha

    Dec. 12- Missouri (Sprint Center)

    Dec. 19- USC

    Dec. 22- @Colorado

    Dec. 29- Harvard

    Jan. 30 TBD (Big 12/SEC Challenge)



  • Even this far out, this schedule looks like a gauntlet for KU. KU is a borderline top 5 preseason team next season, top 10 for sure. Kentucky, UCLA, Virginia, and Creighton should all be ranked when KU plays them and USC could be ranked by that time so that’s potentially 5 ranked teams before B12 play starts. I’m going take a guess that Tennessee in Knoxville is going to be our B12/SEC game so that should be another ranked team. I’m also going to guess that we play UCLA in the Wooden and Virginia plays Georgetown so I wouldn’t be shocked if that ends up being UCLA on the 26th and Virginia the 27th.

    Throw in to that mix that Baylor and Texas Tech are both projected 10 teams next season and KU’s looking at potentially up to 7 games against top 10 teams (Virginia, Creighton, Tennessee, Baylor x2, Tech x2). That’s a meat grinder of a schedule next season.



  • Yes! Missouri!



  • This is actually a very manageable non-conference schedule. Will be interesting to see who we get in the SEC/Challenge- Guessing either @LSU or @Florida. It’s not an easy schedule by any means (when is it ever) but manageable.

    UCLA lost their two best players at the moment. Leading Scorer Chris Smith declared for the draft (although he could pull out) and 5 star recruit Dashean Nix went pro. Not a Top 25 team without either of them.

    Georgetown lost their best player to transfer yesterday. Their other top player went pro.

    Creighton will be good, probably a Top 15 team. They did lose Alexander to the Pro’s which was a huge loss. They would be Top 5 good with him.

    USC has had a lot of roster turnover. Very little talent on the perimeter remains and they only have 1 spot left to get someone who can score.

    Colorado will likely take a step down after losing Tyler Bey to the Pro’s.

    Virginia will be good as they get the transfer Hauser eligible. The inside/out combo of Clark & Huff would be tough as well. Kentucky is Kentucky. 7 freshman, 2 upperclassmen.

    Yes! Missouri!

    Wallop City… And I’m not knocking that you are looking forward to the game (I’m looking forward to beating them too). But man, for real, when was the last time that Mizzou was nationally relevant?



  • @Marco Well, every team plays their cupcakes during the non conference season. Just look at it as Missouri’s our cupcake warmup game!

    I’ve seen some pre season predictions that STILL has them as a top 5
