Jayhawks savor Team USA appearance at opening ceremonies
When Turkey arrives for its game in a few hours, the opponents' uniforms will say Kansas.
On Friday night in Gwangju Universiade Stadium, the Jayhawks were simply Team USA.
The KU basketball team joined more than 10,000 other athletes and nearly 50,000 spectators for the opening ceremonies of the World University Games.
The Jayhawks couldn't stick around for the entire show — their first game begins at noon Saturday (10 p.m. Friday CDT) — but they raved about the experience on social media.
KU forward Landen Lucas gave play-by-play as the team walked to and through the ceremony.
Check out more photos from the ceremonies from Journal-World photographer Mike Yoder.
