Kansas men’s basketball vs. Baylor

MONDAY

As far as Big 12 basketball rivalries go, Kansas-Baylor has been one of the league’s brightest over the past couple of years. The Bears knocked the Jayhawks out of the Big 12 tournament in the teams’ last meeting, but the Jayhawks got the last laugh after advancing to last year’s title game in the NCAA tournament. Baylor has struggled a bit this season following the loss of standouts Perry Jones III, Quincy Acy and Quincy Miller to the NBA Draft, but the team has still displayed moments of brilliance. The Bears beat then-No. 8 Kentucky on the road in December and topped Texas in overtime to open the Big 12 season. Monday’s game in Waco tips off at 8 p.m. on ESPN.

‘Rodin’

DAILY

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art opened this artistic ode to French sculptor Auguste Rodin last month. “Rodin: Sculptures From the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation” is a three-part exhibit that delves into the artist’s various works, from his sculptures depicting historical heroes to his works that tied into his famous “Gates of Hell” sculpture. There are also pieces from his work in plaster and wax. The exhibit is in the Rozzelle Balcony and is free to the public. Go to nelson-

atkins.org for more information.

The Architects

SATURDAY

The release of the “Live in Los Angeles” album in October confirmed that the Architects remain a potent live act. The band’s sweat-infused performances serve as the imposing benchmark every time another punk-based act steps onto a Kansas City stage. Two up-and-coming acts open the show at the Riot Room. Appropriate Grammar adds a hint of country twang to its convincing indie rock. The gothic but gritty sound of Drew Black and Dirty Electric is reminiscent of the Velvet Underground. Tickets to the 8 p.m. show are $8 in advance.

KC Weddings Bridal Spectacular

SATURDAY

The spring and summer wedding season is rapidly approaching, making this month’s Bridal Spectacular a must-attend for prospective brides and grooms. The event regularly offers assistance with everything from wedding venues to attire to flowers. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Overland Park Convention Center and includes more than $10,000 in prize giveaways throughout the day. Tickets are $12, but $2-off coupons are available at Dillard’s bridal registry locations. Go to kcweddings.com for more information.

Missouri Mavericks

FRIDAY-SATURDAY

With the Chiefs, Royals and Sporting KC having wrapped up their respective seasons with varying degrees of success, there’s a severe lack of professional sports going on in the city. Enter the Missouri Mavericks, the Independence-based hockey team coming off a playoff appearance last season. The Mavericks were tied for third in the Central Hockey League with 40 goals through Sunday, and this weekend, they’ll have an opportunity to make up some ground when they host the Tulsa Oilers at 7:05 p.m. on Friday and the Quad City Mallards at 7:15 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets range from $15 to $35 at independenceeventscenter.com.
