(LAWRENCE, Kan.) — After years of offers, KU Basketball may finally play a game in Wichita. But that doesn't have Shocker fans expecting a showdown.
The Jayhawks could play a game at INTRUST bank arena in December, against The University of Southern California Trojans.
The teams first met in 2010, and KU beat USC 70-68 in Allen Fieldhouse. It is USC's turn to host, but it's venue holds almost 5,000 fewer people than the 15,000 seat Intrust Bank Arena.
Shocker fans said they would rather see the hometown team take on KU, instead of a West Coast team. "It's like, they're snubbing us," said WSU fan Martha Cable. "It's like, we don't know you guys are there, so we're bringing in another team. We've got a team that's here, that's going to the Gardens, that's in the Final Four. Come on!"
If the game is played at the INTRUST Bank Arena, USC would still be considered the host, and would keep any profit made.
