LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Andrew Wiggins slouched down in a chair with cameras stuck in his face. Conner Frankamp tried to heave in a half-court shot. Wayne Selden sat back and smiled inside Allen Fieldhouse.
The calendar hasn't even flipped to October and basketball is already on the mind at Kansas.
The Jayhawks will get their first chance to step on the floor this week after the NCAA's legislative council amended and approved a measure allowing men's basketball teams to conduct 30 days of practice in the six weeks prior to their first regular-season game.
Kansas plays its first exhibition game Oct. 29 against Pittsburg State, and its first game that counts against Louisiana-Monroe on Nov. 8.
In the past, practice began roughly four weeks before the regular season.
