Ranked No. 4 in the preseason AP poll, the Kansas men’s basketball team plays its final tuneup of the preseason versus Pittsburg State.
Final exhibition game for the Jayhawks tonight. What do you want to see from KU?
Starters for Fort Hays State: Kyler Kinnamon, Marcus Cooper, Trey O'Neil, Brady Werth and Hadley Gillum.

For my money, I think I'll be watching Malik Newman tonight. He's a guy who I think projects as a 18 points per game type of player, so it'd be nice to see him find a rhythm ahead of Friday's season opener.
Graham is the last starter introduced and had a few teammates laughing as he did his handshakes. Game time.
