On this day six years ago, Jayhawks around the world rejoiced as the KU men’s basketball team won the National Championship, defeating the Memphis Tigers 75-68 in overtime. Mario Chalmers nailed the three-point shot heard ’round the world at the end of regulation to earn the extra five minutes of play.
Although we won’t have a repeat performance tonight after the current team’s earlier-than-hoped-for exit from the tournament, we can reminisce about the Jayhawk camaraderie during the madness of March.
KU Alumni Association staff members hosted watch parties in 12 key locations across the country during the first weekend of this year’s tournament, and hundreds of alumni, fans and friends turned out to show their support.
