KU game locale altered

August 23, 2004


The site of Kansas University's exhibition men's basketball game against University College of Fraser Valley has been changed.

The Jayhawks and Cascades will play at 9 p.m. CDT on Sept. 5 at Mennonite Educational Institute's gym in Abbotsford, British Columbia.

MEI's high school gym seats more fans than Fraser Valley's Activity Centre. It turns out KU won't be the only team playing a doubleheader that day. Fraser Valley will meet Nevada-Las Vegas at 1 p.m. and KU in the night game. KU will meet Langara College at 1 p.m. in Vancouver.

KU's first foe on the four-game Labor Day tour, University of British Columbia, defeated NCAA Division One school Hampton University, 75-66, Wednesday in Vancouver.

Casey Archibald, a 6-foot-4 senior, had 24 points and eight boards for Hampton. KU will play UBC at 2 p.m. on Sept. 4 in Vancouver and also meet the Burnaby Mountain All-Stars at 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 6 in Burnaby.

KU has sold 250 tickets for each of the four games. Deadline for ticket purchases is 5 p.m. Wednesday. For tickets, call 1-800-34-HAWKS.
