ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The UNM Lobos continue trying to bolster their nonconference basketball schedule and national profile.
The university on Wednesday confirmed the team will play perennial national power Kansas Jayhawks in the 2013-14 season.
A request to speak with UNM head coach Steve Alford about the deal was declined by UNM sports information director Frank Mercogliano on Wednesday. On Thursday, UNM confirmed that the game will be played in Kansas City, Mo., and the agreement does not include a clause for a return visit from the Jayhawks to play a future game in the Pit.
Details on TV broadcast rights to the game have not been released.
