Reports: Mizzou and KU to play exhibition game in KC to support hurricane relief

Report: Kansas, Mizzou in talks to play basketball exhibition for hurricane relief

Carrington Harrison of 610 Sports radio first reported the news of the game, which would have to be cleared by the NCAA because of rules not allowing Division I basketball teams to play exhibitions against each other.

After Twitter reports and talk radio chatter surfaced Thursday afternoon about a potential Kansas-Missouri men's basketball scrimmage at Sprint Center later this month, a KU official confirmed to the Journal-World that the KU athletic department had been in talks with Missouri about a potential event that would involve the two basketball programs and raise money for hurricane relief.

The event is going to be called "Showdown for Relief" and it's meant to raise awareness and financial support for hurricane relief efforts.

If the two programs are able to get this done, it would appear to be a major step forward to actually seeing these long-time conference rivals return to actually playing real games against each other. "When I brought the idea to our administration we immediately decided that, if we were going to do this, it needed to be selfless, impactful, and there could be no recognized revenue as a result of the competition".

The game would be more than a gathering between the former Big 12 rivals.

According to the website, the two schools will split the approximately 18,000 seats in Sprint Center. A limited number of tickets for Mizzou students will be available for purchase starting Tuesday, Oct. 17. The game will not be televised or streamed online.

KU, which leads the all-time series with MU, 173-95, won 11 of the last 13 men's basketball meetings between the two rivals, including the final game, a thrilling, 87-86, come-from-way-behind victory at Allen Fieldhouse on February 25, 2012.

The Missouri-Kansas rivalry dates back to 1907, with the Jayhawks leading the all-time series 172-95.

International Monetary Fund raises China growth forecast for 2017 to 6.8 pct
In comparison, China's GDP growth has kept slowing down since 2010 and hit a 26-year lowest with 6.7% last year. But it was less optimistic on the country's long-term prospects, citing the shrinking Japanese labour force.

Following that season, the Tigers left the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference and Kansas dug in, refusing to play the Tigers in either football or men's basketball. "I guarantee you they don't feel any different than I do".
