KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kansas will headline the CBE Classic at Sprint Center in November, and will be joined by Georgia, UAB and NIT champion George Washington in the championship rounds of the tournament.

The Jayhawks return several key players from last season’s team, which spent much of the season ranked No. 1 in the nation. They also will welcome the nation’s top-rated recruit in Josh Jackson as they begin pursuit of a 13th straight Big 12 championship.

The championship rounds are Nov. 21-22. They wrap up a weekend of festivities that includes the induction of the latest class into the College Basketball Hall of Fame.

Among those who will be inducted are Dominique Wilkins, Doug Collins and Mike Montgomery.
