NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Eastern Washington at Kansas

Kansas forward David McCormack and Texas Tech guard/forward Terrence Shannon Jr. will be among 19 players attending Big 12 men’s basketball media day next week.

The league’s coaches, players and media will be in Kansas City on Oct. 20 for interviews. Media day is closed to the public, but it will be streamed live on ESPNU and Big 12 Now on ESPN+. The ESPNU coverage will begin at 8:30 am CT, while ESPN+ will begin at 8:45 am CT. The event will end at 12:30 pm CT.

McCormack is the reigning Big 12 Most Improved Player of the Year and is one of four returning starters for the Jayhawks this season. McCormack was also a second-team selection.


Shannon is Texas Tech’s top returning player and flirted with the NBA before returning for his junior season. He was an All-Big 12 Third-Team pick a year ago.

Baylor: Matthew Mayer, Flo Thamba

Iowa State: George Conditt

Kansas: David McCormack, Ochai Agbaji
