According to Jim Meehan with the Spokesman Review, the Gonzaga Bulldogs and the Kansas Jayhawks have agreed to a home and home series beginning in 2022.
BIG news on future GU schedules: Gonzaga and Kansas have agreed to a home-and-home series, according to a source.— Jim Meehan (@SRJimm) March 28, 2020
Series expected to begin at Allen Fieldhouse in Dec. 2022, return game at McCarthey Athletic Center in Dec. 2023.
This is exactly the kind of game that makes college basketball so special. If you had to pick one of the best teams in the past few years not named Gonzaga, Kansas would most likely be at the top of the list.
The only bad news about any of this is that we will have to wait a few years for the game to transpire.
Kansas rolling into Spokane will be the biggest non-conference game ever. Previously, that should have belonged to the North Carolina Tar Heels this season. However, the Tar Heels arrived a shattered piece of what they could have been, and although the energy was electric and the fact that UNC was in Spokane was huge, it always felt a bit of a bummer.
Kansas, on the other hand, doesn’t have down years. The Jayhawks have been a No. 1 seed for seven of the past 10 years. They were the top team in the nation this season and largely considered the favorites for the title.
In short. Holy crap.
