There’s a big basketball game this Saturday, Jayhawks.

It’s the perfect opportunity to gather with fellow alumni, fans and friends!

Hang out with staff members from the KU Alumni Association, Kansas Athletics and the Williams Fund before the game at the Magnolia Room in the Hilton Lexington Downtown.

We’ll have light snacks, a cash bar and TVs showing other games.
