Temple's basketball team prides itself on facing tough nonconference opponents.

That's why it's not surprising that the Owls will face national power Kansas in a home-and-home series. Temple is also scheduled to play Duke for the third consecutive season and 28th time overall. And as reported in March, Temple will also play Syracuse next season.

Temple will face Kansas next season at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kan. The two teams will play again during the 2014-15 season in Philadelphia, most likely at the Wells Fargo Center.

Kansas lost to Kentucky in this past season's NCAA national championship game. The Jayhawks finished the season with a 32-7 record.

The Owls will face the Blue Devils next season in the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J. This past season, Temple snapped a nine-game losing streak to Duke with a 78-73 upset at Wells Fargo. The Blue Devils finished last season 29-7 and lost to Lehigh in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
