Sound Off: When is the first KU basketball game?

The Jayhawks open the 2012 season on Tuesday against Emporia State University. The game will be at 7 p.m. at Allen Fieldhouse.

I had almost forgotten about this game, who can ask the dumbest "Sound Off" question. This one is the early leader for Fall 2012. Nice work!

Buzz. Wrong answer... Of course, we all "know" that they're talking about the men's basketball game. However, since the question did not specify, and there have been stories about how this is the year to see the great women's team with Angel and Co., I feel compelled to answer: KU women's basketball plays on Sunday, October 28, at 2:00 p.m. Opponent will be Washburn Lady Blues.

Thanks, Romans832, you beat me to it. I also noticed that the question did not specify men's or women's team, and I was disappointed to see that the answer assumed they were asking about the men's team.

The first basketball game is THIS SUNDAY. Is there no such thing as Women's Basketball to the LJW?

Romans832 5 years, 6 months ago

I had the same reaction. (See my longer reply above.) I have sent LJW an e-mail suggesting a correction, or at least a clarification.

I'll be there Sunday!

Only when they go to the Sweet Sixteen. Otherwise, nope.

It's a shame, really. Lawrencians are missing out on watching some terrific basketball, in great seats, for a steal of a price. The LJW could do a lot better job of reporting on the games, printing photos, etc.

I thought it was in August across the pond?
