UMKC will open its Western Athletic Conference schedule in the league’s Northwest corner. The Kangaroos will visit Idaho on Jan. 2 and two days later play Seattle.

Also, UMKC will play two conference games at the Independence Events Center, which school officials have mentioned as a possible site for a future WAC Tournament.

The Kangaroos will play Bakersfield on Feb. 20 and Seattle on March 6 in Independence.

The WAC Tournament is March 11-14 in Las Vegas.

Most other home games will be played at Municipal Auditorium. The Kangaroos have three home games where the site hasn’t been announced.
