The Kansas women’s basketball team again will be among the most-televised teams in the nation during the upcoming season, making a minimum of seven national television appearances among 25 televised games.

The Jayhawks will make one appearance each on ESPN2 and the Big Ten Network, two on ESPNU and three on Fox Sports Net (FSN).

The Jayhawks will host Oklahoma State on Tuesday, January 12, at 11 a.m. on ESPNU. Thousands of area schoolchildren will attend the game as part of Kansas Athletics’ Schools for Success program.
