KC’s Travis Releford is the Jayhawks’ ‘rock’

On Friday night, Kansas senior Travis Releford will start for the top-seeded Jayhawks in their NCAA Tournament opener against Western Kentucky. In a glistening arena just a few miles from where he was raised, Releford will make a final run through his hometown. In some ways, it’s the culmination of a story of perseverance and quiet determination. When so many wondered if Releford could cut it at Kansas, he stuck it out, waiting his turn, never complaining.
