Border War exhibition scheduled

It's not the Border War.

The Mizzou men's basketball is in discussion with Kansas to play an exhibition game.

The schools announced Friday that they will face off in an exhibition game October 22 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, with proceeds to benefit hurricane relief.

With Missouri's basketball program finding new life with the recent hire of head coach Cuonzo Martin and the arrival of Michael Porter Jr., the No. 1 overall recruit in the Class of 2017, many MU supporters have been clamoring for the revival of the Border War.

KU and Missouri have faced each other in a couple of sports since the Tigers' departure, but those meetings - in softball and volleyball - came in postseason play and were not scheduled by the two schools. The teams split two regular-season meetings that year.

In a statement to The Kansas City Star, Kansas associate athletics director Jim Marchiony also acknowledged the talks. "I don't know when that time will be".

The Missouri-Kansas rivalry dates back to 1907, with the Jayhawks leading the all-time series 172-95.

"The opportunity to make an impact on those suffering as result of the hurricanes, through the game of basketball, is a great opportunity for our program", Kansas coach Bill Self said in a release.

Martin urged fans to attend and support the cause.

All proceeds would go to a hurricane relief fund. "This scrimmage will not only be fun for fans of Mizzou and Kansas, but also for people all over the world".

In 2011, after the Joplin tornadoes, Missouri was cleared to play in an exhibition against Missouri Southern to raise money for relief efforts.

Missouri will play in two closed scrimmages before its November 10 opener against Iowa State.
