They might have fallen short of their ultimate goal of playing to the final weekend of the college basketball season in early April, but the 2022-23 Kansas men’s basketball team still has a few dates set for next month.

The 2023 Kansas barnstorming tour soon will be landing in Dodge City on April 14 (6:30 p.m. at Dodge City Community College’s Dome), in Wichita on April 15 (3 p.m. at Friends University’s Garvey Center) and in Pittsburg on April 16 (2 p.m. at John Lance Arena).

Tickets for the event, which will be hosted through a partnership between G1 Sports and KU’s Mass Street Collective, can be purchased through the collective’s web site — — and, according to a news release announcing the dates, the collective has secured contractual agreements with 14 members of the 2022-23 KU team, including all five starters from this season’s team.

Those players expected to attend include: Dajuan Harris Jr., Gradey Dick, Kevin McCullar Jr., Jalen Wilson, KJ Adams, Ernest Udeh Jr., Zuby Ejiofor, Joe Yesufu, MJ Rice, Kyle Cuffe Jr. and walk-ons Wilder Evers, Charlie McCarthy, Dillon Wilhite and Michael Jankovich.

Former KU great, Jeff Boschee, now the head coach at Pitt State University, is also expected to be involved on the final day of the tour.

As in the past, fans who purchase either VIP ($150) or reserved ($100) tickets will be able to meet some of their favorite players and participate in an autograph session. There are also tickets available for $20 (general admission) and $35 (general admission with a digitally autographed poster) for each of the three sites.

New to the 2023 barnstorming experience will be additional programming to provide more fan interaction with the players.

That will include an on-court event, a Q&A session with the players, as well as a skills challenge, which will feature the Jayhawks teaming up with randomly selected members of the crowd to participate in a team relay, shooting drills and half-court shot attempts for prizes.

Fans can also purchase exclusive Barnstorming Tour T-Shirts and merchandise through an online auction, as well as previously autographed memorabilia at all three stops.
