Jayhawks to hold clinic for Special Olympians


The Kansas University men's basketball team will work with Special Olympics athletes at the Wilt Chamberlain Clinic on Feb. 4 in Allen Fieldhouse.

During the clinic, KU coach Bill Self, his players and staff will help nearly 100 Special Olympics athletes sharpen their basketball skills, encourage them as they scrimmage and answer questions during an autograph session.

The event was renamed in its 23rd year because of a special gift from the Chamberlain estate to support the annual clinic.

This is a great thing that every college basketball program in the country should participate in. Kudos to Coach Self for continuing it.
