LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Everyone figures to become a fan of Kansas basketball next summer.
Even the folks who follow bitter rival Missouri.
The Jayhawks have been chosen to represent the U.S. at the World University Games in Gwangju, Korea. The event in July 2015 will match the Jayhawks - ahem, Team USA - against nations from around the world, most of which will be putting together all-star teams for the tournament.
That was the practice of the U.S. in the past. But after a disappointing showing last year and with some unique scheduling issues for next year's event, the U.S. International University Sports Federation decided it would choose a single program to represent the country.
Kansas was chosen over a list of undisclosed candidates.
