If you couldn’t make it out for KUsports.com’s 2017-18 Kansas basketball season tip-off party Thursday night at Abe & Jake’s Landing, here’s some of what you missed.
Members of the 2008 KU national championship team, Sherron Collins, Tyrel Reed, Brennan Bechard, Jeremy Case and Matt Kleinmann sat down with Matt Tait and Tom Keegan to watch the final minutes of the Jayhawks’ memorable overtime victory over Memphis from nearly a decade ago.
Afterward, the former KU players fielded questions from fans.
Collins, Reed and Bechard gave their thoughts on what makes Bill Self a great coach.
Case discussed how Self and then-assistant Danny Manning worked together.
And Collins explained how important it was to have Brandon Rush back on the team that season when he could have left early for the NBA, had Rush not suffered an injury.
