— Kansas will play a home-and-home basketball series with UNLV, officials from each school announced Thursday.

The series will open at Allen Fieldhouse during the 2014-15 season, and after a season off, KU will make the return trip to the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas in 2016-17.

Kansas last played UNLV in the NCAA Tournament in 2008. The Jayhawks defeated the Runnin’ Rebels in the second round on their way to an NCAA title. KU leads the all-time series 4-0.
