Jayhawks release 2018-19 nonconference schedule

The Kansas women’s basketball team released its nonconference schedule Tuesday afternoon.

For the 2018-19 season, the Jayhawks will play seven of their 11 nonconference games in Allen Fieldhouse. After a pair of exhibition contests, Kansas will host UMKC on Wednesday, Nov. 7 for the season opener.

Kansas will start the season by playing five straight home games before traveling to LSU on Thursday, Nov. 29. Kansas also plays at Nebraska on Dec. 5 and travels to Las Vegas, Nevada for a two-day tournament in late December. The Jayhawks conclude nonconference action with a home meeting against Vermont on Sunday, Dec. 30.

Head coach Brandon Schneider, who enters his fourth season at the helm, guided his team to a 12-18 record last season. The Jayhawks won their first seven games of the regular season before eventually posting a 3-15 clip in Big 12 play.
