Kansas Basketball 50 in 50, No. 30: KU Close to Home and Home With NC State


50 in 50 is a feature here at RCT counting down until the Jayhawks kick off the 2011 basketball season on November first. Got an idea for something you'd like to see featured here? tweet @rockchalktalk or @fetch9 or email me at fetch9 at gmail dot com.

I've already talked about non-conference scheduling in a previous incarnation of 50 in 50 and how important it is to do it properly. A few days ago new NC State coach Mark Gottfried mentioned that he was close to sealing a home and home deal with Kansas, where they would come to Allen Fieldhouse next winter and then the Jayhawks would return the favor the following year.

NC State has been called out in the past for having poor basketball attendance, but they were  in the top 25 in average attendance in 2010 with 13,184 fans per game. But their stadium holds nearly 18,000 and is the 8th largest in D1 basketball, so it's only fair to assume the atmosphere is lacking a bit in Raleigh. One thing is for sure, it should be jam packed for the Jayhawks' visit.
