An evening with basketball legends

Posted on Apr 24, 2014 in Alumni News, News, and Sports

Basketball season is over, but that didn’t stop Jayhawks in the southern part of the state from enjoying an evening with basketball legends this week.

KU alumni, fans and friends gathered at the Winfield Country Club to hear from former men’s basketball coach Ted Owens and legendary basketball star Bud Stallworth. Coach Owens led two teams to the Final Four and won 206 games in Allen Fieldhouse. He recently published At the Hang-up: Seeking Your Purpose, Running Your Face, Finishing Strong, and attendees had the opportunity to buy copies of the book.

Staff from the KU Libraries also attended with their popular exhibit “An Evening with Naismith: Artifacts of a KU Legend.”

If you’re in the Winfield area, be sure to get involved with the South Chapter to learn about other upcoming events.
