Kansas Athletics has finalized and released the 2016-17 men's basketball non-conference schedule, and once again, it is loaded:

NOV 11 INDIANA HONOLULU, HI
NOV 15 DUKE NEW YORK CITY

DEC 6 UMKC LAWRENCE, KAN
DEC 10 NEBRASKA LAWRENCE, KAN

DEC 22 UNLV LAS VEGAS, NV
JAN 28 KENTUCKY LEXINGTON, KY

Ten of these foes were in some sort of postseason, including four who participated in the NCAA Tournament last year.  The Big 12 league schedule will be released in August.

Some interesting notes:

Under Bill Self, Kansas has been in the top 10 in strength of schedule 8 of 13 years, including 3 years with the most difficult SOS.

Kansas and Indiana haven't met since 1995.

Kansas and UNC Asheville both lost to Villanova in the NCAA Tournament last year.

Kansas is 8-3 all-time vs Stanford but has lost the last two matchups with the Cardinal.

Former Jayhawk Jerod Haase will lead Stanford into Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas is 51-7 vs Nebraska in Allen Fieldhouse all-time.
