A state senator wants the University of Kansas and Kansas State men’s basketball teams to play Wichita State each year before the three schools begin conference play.

Republican Sen. Michael O’Donnell, of Wichita, introduced legislation Tuesday requiring the two Big 12 schools to do just that starting in 2014. Wichita State plays in the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Shockers last met Kansas in 1993, losing to the Jayhawks 103-43.

Kansas State and Wichita State last played in 2003. The Wildcats won that game 54-50 in Manhattan.

O’Donnell’s bill would let the schools decide where the mandatory non-conference games would be played.
