LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Some Kansas fans are being asked to make a tough choice.

Economic development officials are looking for 15 Jayhawks fans willing to give up their tickets to the Kansas-Oklahoma State men's basketball game.

The seats will go to visiting executives who recommend possible expansion sites to the nation's biggest companies.

The Lawrence Chamber of Commerce wants to impress these visitors.

Twelve of the 27 tickets needed for the consultants and their guests have been found. But it hasn't been easy.

Tickets to the game already are selling on the Web for more than 850 dollars apiece.
