KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The University of Kansas men's basketball game Monday against Oklahoma State will air on ESPN2, the team tweeted.

The game was originally scheduled to air on ESPN.

Network executives moved the game so they could air a tribute to Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash Sunday morning. His 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, also died in the crash.

Officials on Monday identified several others who were killed in the crash.

KU said its game would begin at 8 p.m.
