LAWRENCE — Kansas women’s basketball’s non-conference schedule for the 2023-24 season is out, with a challenging slate awaiting head coach Brandon Schneider and his team.

Out of the 11 games, five will take place inside Allen Fieldhouse. Three are road games. And three will be played at neutral sites.

The season opener is Nov. 8 at home against Northwestern State.
