Boston University Basketball to Play Kansas State

The Boston University men’s basketball team usually plays one or two mid-major or upper echelon team during the course of their non-conference schedule. This November, the Terriers will face not one but two high quality teams in just a matter of days. As part of the O’Reilly Auto Parts Puerto Rico Tip-Off, BU will face Big XII team Kansas State in the first round of the pre-season tournament on Thursday, November 19th.

Even if BU loses to Kansas State, the Terriers will play either Indiana (yes, like Bob Knight’s Indiana) or Ole Miss. The game against the Wildcats of Kansas State (22-12 last season) will be the first game for new head coach, Pat Chambers, who talked to SportsofBoston.com earlier this summer.

My Take: Most BU fans have been waiting for this announcement for some time. There’s lots of excitement going on int he BU basketball program right now, not only because of a new coach/new attitude but the thought of so many returning players. Even if the Terriers leave Puerto Rico without a victory, the experience of playing Big XII and SEC (or potentially Big 10) schools can only help heading into the rest of the non-conference schedule.
