UMKC has made a change in its athletic director position, reassigning Carla Wilson. Now the Kangaroos are assessing their athletic future and looking to increase fund-raising, and have enlisted ex-Missouri AD Mike Alden to help.
The UMKC Kangaroos men's basketball signed its second player of the spring, 6-4 guard Rob Whitfield, originally from Raleigh, N.C. He transfers to Kansas City from Hutchinson Community College, where he averaged eight points last season.
UMBC pulled off the miracle, a 20-point victory over NCAA Tournament top seed Virginia, and became the first No. 16 seed to defeat a No. 1 seed. UMBC AD Tim Hall had same dream for UMKC when he worked there.
