Tickets to Sunday’s KU-MU men’s basketball game sold out Tuesday afternoon

Tickets to Sunday’s hurricane-relief exhibition game between the Kansas and Missouri men’s basketball teams sold out nearly as quickly as they went online today. A representative from the KU ticket office said each school’s allotment for the 3 p.m. Sunday game at the Sprint Center in Kansas City was about 9,000 tickets, for a total of about 18,000. There will be no public sale Wednesday.

Two seasons into retirement, Pinkel hurt by Mizzou’s struggles but ‘confident’ in Odom

Two seasons into retirement, Gary Pinkel has no interest in coming back to coach the Missouri Tigers football team. But given his intimacy with the program, Pinkel is “concerned,” his wife said. He cares about his former recruits and Barry Odom, whom he recommended for the job. Pinkel still lives in Columbia but plans to spend time later in Florida. Until then, Pinkel’s proximity to a struggling Mizzou football program presents, at least from the outside, a unique and somewhat difficult situation to stomach.

NCAA Board of Directors requiring self-review of each D-I men’s basketball program

The NCAA has directed all Division I programs to examine their men’s basketball programs for potential rules violations following an FBI probe of the sport, and Kansas Athletics — for one — says it has followed through on the request. The Associated Press reported Monday that it had asked 84 colleges, including all the nation’s power men’s basketball programs, and six top conferences about their response to the FBI investigation and arrests. Of 63 schools that responded, 28 said the FBI’s probe into college basketball recruiting and bribery prompted their own internal reviews, the AP reported.

Border War back on: KU-Mizzou to play charity exhibition Oct. 22 at Sprint Center

The Kansas Jayhawks will play the Missouri Tigers in an exhibition men’s basketball game at 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 22 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. Proceeds from the game will go to hurricane relief efforts. Mizzou and KU haven’t played the Border War in basketball since the Tigers departed the Big 12 Conference for the Southeastern Conference in 2012. Tickets will be split among both schools and sold by each athletic department. There will be no TV but the KU and MU radio networks will carry the game.

Facing Georgia’s tough defense, will Mizzou use a 305-pound fullback again?

Redshirt senior Alec Abeln, a 305-pounder, had started nine games combined during the past two seasons, all as an offensive lineman. But he saw his first significant action this season at fullback. Abeln’s playing time indicated part of a greater commitment by Missouri to provide extra blockers for the running game, something the Tigers might continue to do moving forward after running for 213 yards against Kentucky.
