Add Newman to the list

Wichita State will play Newman in an exhibition game on Nov. 7. As of Thursday morning, the contract was not signed so nobody was talking about it on the record. Newman released its schedule on its Web site today, and there it is.

The Jets have wanted a Division I matchup since moving to Division II in 2006-07. The game against WSU will be their first game against a Division I school as an NCAA member and the first meeting between the two schools. The women’s teams meet on Nov. 8.
