Jayhawks to arrive in Switzerland … eventually

KU basketball team to leave D.C. on afternoon flight

August 6, 2012


Kansas University's basketball team is scheduled to arrive in Zurich to begin its European tour early to mid morning Tuesday, associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said today.

The Jayhawks, who had weather-related flight problems on Sunday that kept the team in Washington, D.C., overnight, were to depart Washington's Dulles Airport at 3:05 p.m., Eastern time, today on Lufthansa Airlines and fly to Frankfurt, Germany. There the squad catches a connecting flight to Zurich where it figures to arrive somewhere around 9 a.m., Tuesday, Switzerland time.

"Everybody is upbeat and ready to take the next leg on the journey," Marchiony said.

The Jayhawks are still planning on playing the Swiss National team at noon, Central time, Tuesday, which is 7 p.m. in Switzerland.
