MU, KU basketball won't play Border War game this season

— The Border War game between Kansas and Missouri basketball won’t be played this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Kansas Athletics announced Tuesday they’ve reached an agreement to push the six-game series back by one season.

The game had been scheduled to take place this year at T-Mobile Center in Kansas City on Dec. 12.

“When the NCAA moved the start of the basketball season from November 10th to November 25th, like everyone else, we went to work on creating a new schedule,” KU Athletics Director Jeff Long said.

This will leave two games in consecutive seasons (2025-2026 and 2026-2027) to be played at T-Mobile Center in Kansas City.

Kansas Head Coach Bill Self said the delay will hopefully allow more fans to see the game in person.
