Wichita State and the Kansas Jayhawks had not met since 1993, in what was once a regularly-scheduled match-up.

Wichita St. is getting the game it has been waiting for.  Today, the Shockers will get their chance at Bill Self and the Jayhawks.  The two schools have not met since 1993 due to Kansas disagreeing to scheduling a game.  Kansas owns the all time series 12-2 and Kansas has won the last five meetings handedly.  Wichita’s last win came back in 1981.  The schools have not played a game that has been within 20 points since 1989.  The Jayhawks won the last meeting 103-54.  There’s no way on this earth this one gets that out of hand.

Oklahoma lost a heartbreaker against No. 17 Iowa State but looks to rebound well against a Jayhawk team that’s missing a couple of key pieces. Tipoff is at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN.
