If reports out of Kansas City are true, the Border War will resume later this month.

Carrington Harrison of 610 Sports reported Thursday afternoon that Missouri and Kansas are in negotiations to play an exhibition basketball game at the Sprint Center.

The University of Missouri did not confirm the scrimmage was finalized, but did say something was in the works.

"We are in discussions with Kansas for a special event, however, it would be premature to discuss the details at this point in the process."

The schools would need to obtain a waiver from the NCAA to finalize the game.

The Tigers and Jayhawks haven't met in basketball since Missouri left the Big 12 following the 2011-2012 academic year.

Missouri and Kansas have met 267 times in basketball, with the Jayhawks holding a 172-95 lead. The series began in 1907.
