KU looks to rebound against the Broncs of Rider University.

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports




KU looks to rebound after their absolutely horrific showing versus Kentucky eight days ago as the Rider Broncs invade Allen Fieldhouse in a non-bracketed game of the Orlando Classic.

Kansas is 1-1 on the year after the Kentucky game and have fallen to #11 in the AP Poll. Rider comes in unranked at 2-1. The Broncs have defeated Lehigh and Penn while having lost to Princeton.

KU is 2-0 versus Rider all time with victories in 1987 and 1990, both games in Allen Fieldhouse. The Broncs are coached by Kevin Baggett, who is 35-33 in his third season at Rider, and are members of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) where they were picked seventh in the 11-member league's preseason coaches' poll.

Tonight's game will be televised on Jayhawk IMG TV and ESPN Full Court can also be seen via the internet by fans outside of Kansas by visiting KUAthletics.com/ESPN3.com - Blackout conditions may apply.
