After the final tuneup against Canada Friday, the Jayhawks will travel to Korea in preparation for pool play. In order to make it to the championship bracket, Kansas will have to play well in its five pool games.

If it wants to finish in the top two, Kansas would most likely need to win a minimum of four games. If the teams beat each other up, going 3-3 and winning a tie-breaker is possible, but who needs all of that drama?

Here is a look at the pool play schedule, and its very early and late start times thanks to the dramatic time difference between Korea and the United States.*

Friday, July 3, 10 p.m. CST — vs. Turkey at Dongkang Gymnasium.

Sunday, July 5, 6:30 a.m. CST — vs. Brazil at Dongkang Gymnasium.

Tuesday, July 7, 12:30 a.m. CST — vs. Chile at Muan Indoor Gymnasium.

Tuesday, July 7, 10 p.m. CST — vs. Serbia at Dongkang Gymnasium.

Wednesday, July 8, 10 a.m. CST — vs. Switzerland at Dongkang Gymnasium.

Should the Jayhawks advance, championship bracket play will run from July 10-13. Team USA /Kansas will have to win three games to claim the gold medal.

If your schedule allows, you can watch each game on ESPNU. Some may be tape delayed due to the time difference, but if that is the case, fans can follow the game via live streaming on ESPN3.com.
