Does Kansas University ever use women to officiate men's basketball games?

KU Associate Athletic Director Jim Marchiony said no one could recall a woman officiating a KU men's basketball game. That's not to say they aren't allowed to, or wouldn't be wanted, just that it hasn't happened. Big 12 Conference Associate Commissioner Bob Burda said there are no women on the roster of officials to be assigned to Big 12 men's basketball games. However, there could be in the future. "Our goal is to have the best officials available, regardless of gender," Burda said. The Big 12 handles assigning officials for KU games.
