Kansas, Missouri to renew 'Border War' rivalry with charity basketball game

Kevin Puryear and Jordan Barnett of Mizzou Tigers from 2016-17 season Kansas Jayhawks' Devonte' Graham from 2016-17 season

More than 2,000 days have passed since the last Border War game was played, but those days could be numbered.

The schools announced Friday that the programs will square off on October 22 at Kansas City's Sprint Center as part of a charity exhibition game, with the goal of the game - labeled the "Showdown for Relief" - to raise awareness and $1 million for hurricane relief efforts in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The game will not be televised or streamed, but each school's radio network will broadcast it.

If the two programs are able to get this done, it would appear to be a major step forward to actually seeing these long-time conference rivals return to actually playing real games against each other.

Missouri and Kansas haven't played since the Tigers departed the Big 12 Conference for the Southeastern Conference in 2012.

Kansas basketball coach Bill Self has been adamant against scheduling Mizzou since the school announced plans to join the SEC.

KU and Mizzou haven't met on the basketball court since the Jayhawks won in overtime at Allen Fieldhouse in 2012.

"I'm sure there will be a time where Kansas and Missouri play again". He made it clear Friday that his stance hasn't changed when it comes to a regular-season meeting, though the charitable component made this situation unique.

"The only focus is to raise as much money as we can for people who have been devastated by these natural disasters".

Even though it's merely an exhibition, there is plenty of intrigue surrounding the Border War.

In 2011, Missouri scheduled a similar charity exhibition game in Joplin against Missouri Southern to raise money for rebuilding efforts in Joplin following the tornado earlier that spring. The Tigers counter with one of the nation's top freshmen classes led by the No. 1 overall recruit, Michael Porter Jr. The two teams have played in non-revenue sports in the NCAA Tournament a few times since but have had no productive talks to resume the series in football or basketball. Other disasters have occurred in the meantime, including hurricanes Irma and Maria. But I do think I caught the majority of the attention initially when I said, 'They left us.
