Kansas basketball junior walk-on Evan Manning hit a three-pointer in the closing moments of the Jayhawks' exhibition victory over Emporia State, with his mom and dad in the stands. Dad Danny Manning is a first-year coach at Wake Forest.

“We went 1-4 flat. I told everybody to get out of his way,” KU coach Bill Self said. “He made the shot. Danny was in the locker room after. It was good to see Danny. Evan is a great kid. It was good to see him do that in front of mom and dad.”

What did Danny say to his son after the game?

“Nice shot,” Evan said, smiling.

That was a great moment. Congrats to Evan and his family! I wish Tyler had a couple more seconds at the end of the game on that break-away, that would have been a perfect end! With this year's schedule, I don't think we'll see a lot of these guys so I'm glad they got some playing time.
