Kansas vs. Temple preview: Game time, TV schedule and more

Jamie Squire

The Kansas Jayhawks will wrap up their 2012-13 non-conference schedule on Sunday against the Temple Owls.

In search of their 11th consecutive win, the Kansas Jayhawks will welcome the Temple Owls to Allen Fieldhouse on Sunday afternoon for a marquee game on national television.

Representing the final non-conference game on Kansas' schedule, Sunday's meeting will air live on CBS in the middle of the afternoon. Following a five-game stretch where his senior big man amassed 19 blocks, head coach Bill Self will hope to use yet another dominant defensive performance from player of the year candidate Jeff Withey to overwhelm an opponent. The 7'0" Withey ranks second in college basketball with 4.9 blocks per game, and continues to score at an impressive rate with double-digit points in seven of his last eight contests.

The Owls are one of the best teams in America at limiting turnovers at the offensive end, but have often struggled with consistency from three-point range despite their 10-2 record. In addition to a monumental Dec. 22 victory over a previously-undefeated Syracuse team, Temple has already picked up non-conference wins over both Villanova and Kent State.

When: Sunday, Jan.6

Where: Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence, Kan.

Game Time: 3:30 p.m. CT

TV channel: CBS
