Sherron Collins book-signing

Meet the Unsung Hero of Kansas’ 2008 NCAA Title Squad at Dillons Mario Chalmers commanded most of the headlines following Kansas’ win over Memphis in the 2008 national championship game – and deservedly so. Still, anyone who witnessed the Jayhawks’ victory knows it wouldn’t have been possible without the clutch play of Sherron Collins, whose steal and 3-pointer in the waning minutes ignited KU’s comeback in the 75-68 overtime triumph. Four years later, Collins will return to the Sunflower State to sign copies of “Beyond the Phog – Untold Stories from Kansas Basketball’s Most Dominant Decade.” Authored by’s Jason King, the book features chapters on 40 players and coaches and provides a behind-the-scenes look at one of college basketball’s true dynasties. Collins is featured prominently on the book’s cover. For Collins – a former All-American and the fifth-leading scorer in KU history – the book-signing will provide an opportunity to reconnect with Jayhawk fans, which made his time in Lawrence so memorable.
