After a Nov. 9 exhibition against Washburn, K-State plays host to Southern Utah in the regular-season opener Nov. 14. A Nov. 17 home game against UMKC is followed by a Nov. 21 game at Long Beach State, which is a stopover for the Wildcats on the way to Maui for the Thanksgiving Week tournament. Also in the field are Arizona, San Diego State, BYU, Pittsburgh, Missouri, Purdue and host Chaminade. Games are Nov. 24-26.
