Basketball is life in Kansas. Where I grew up, going to a University of Kansas (KU) Jayhawks basketball game was a kind of a religious experience. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, founded the KU basketball program in 1898. The atmosphere at Allen Fieldhouse, where the Jayhawks play their home games, is raucous and contagious. Whether you’re by the student section (wild!) or sitting in comfortable seats right behind the bench, you’re one with the fans and invested in the team.
“Rock, chalk, Jayhawk, KUUU-uuuuuu!”
Harrison Wildcats host first home game; Twin Bridges Falcons and Ennis Mustangs compete in tournaments.
