Outlook: UMKC opens conference play and looks to keep its perfect start at home alive; the Kangaroos are 6-0 at Municipal, the first time they’ve opened a season with that many consecutive home wins since starting 7-0 in 2010-2011, which is the school record. UMKC finished nonconference play with the highest strength of schedule in the WAC at No. 82. Martez Harrison (14.6 points per game) and LaVell Boyd (13.1) rank fifth and 10th in scoring in the conference. Seattle is led by forwards Brendan Westendorf (11.4 points, 5.5 rebounds) and Jack Crook (10.6, 6.6).
