Report: Kansas, Mizzou in talks to play basketball exhibition for hurricane relief

Kansas and Missouri’s men’s basketball teams are in discussions to hold an exhibition game on Sunday, Oct. 22, per multiple reports.

The game would be more than a gathering between the former Big 12 rivals. Revenue from the exhibition would be donated to hurricane relief efforts, according to Carrington Harrison of 610 Sports Radio and Gabe DeArmond of Power Mizzou.

The exhibition between the Border War rivals is still being discussed on a preliminary basis and none of the game’s details are definitive. The teams would also need a waiver from the NCAA to hold the event.

Kansas and Missouri’s men’s basketball programs last played each other on Feb. 25, 2012. The Jayhawks won 87-86 and leads the all-time series 172-96.

While the rivalry runs deep between the Jayhawks and Tigers, this exhibition would bring the two programs together for something bigger than the game.
