During a reception Saturday evening at the new downtown Two Light apartment building, former KU Jayhawk Mario Chalmers was honored during a ceremony commemorating the new mural of his iconic shot that propelled KU to the 2008 NCAA title.
Kansas coach Bill Self reacted to new charges filed April 10, 2018 against Adidas executive James Gatto, who is alleged to have conspired to pay the mother and to a guardian of two unnamed KU basketball players without the university's knowledge.
Kansas center Udoka Azubuike was reunited with his mother, Florence Azuonuwu, for the first time in six years on the night before the Jayhawks' Final Four loss to Villanova on March 31, 2018 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
Mario Chalmers' shot in 2008 that sent the NCAA title game into overtime came on a play the Jayhawks botched earlier against Texas. Coach Bill Self attributes their success to the practice the team put into the play after the first failed attempt.
