Celebrations end thrilling season
Sunday capped nearly a month of high-fives, hugs and impromptu celebrations, courtesy of Kansas University's men's basketball team. A victory parade in downtown Lawrence was the final chapter in a season that kept Jayhawk fans on edge but ultimately brought a national championship home.
Anticipation for this afternoon's victory parade honoring the Kansas University basketball team is growing, as sidewalks and street corners in downtown Lawrence fill up with spectators. Wrapped in blankets and perched on folding chairs, fans are proud of their Jayhawks and excited to see a celebration that is expected to draw 80,000 people to downtown.
