Lawrence celebration underway for championship KU basketball team

The Kansas Men’s Basketball is home after a thrilling NCAA Tournament win in New Orleans late Monday night. After a hard-fought victory, the team received the homecoming of a lifetime as they made their way back to the University of Kansas in Lawrence. “There’s no other better place to play college basketball than Lawrence, Kansas,” said Noah Ginsberg. “This is why you got to go to a school like Kansas. There’s no guarantee these things will happen, but there’s always a chance,” said Bill Self, KU’s basketball coach. It was a hero’s welcome in Lawrence as the champs were hailed by hundreds of fans in Memorial Stadium.”The basketball team is special for all of us. They represent our community real well. They represent what we’ re about – our hard work and we just want to show our support for them,” Ginsberg said. Many fans arrived right when the stadium gates opened to get a front-row seat to see the team.”We’re die-hard KU fans, and this is my third I’ll be at. I was there in ’88, 2008, and now here,” said Mike Mackey. It was an experience that many said they will never forget.”I think it’s fun and great to see in my life,” said Mia Mackey. Coach Self said the support from students, alumni, and fans is unmatched.”The fan support, the admin support, everything is aligned within our basketball program and it’s just such a thrill to be a part of something that’s so good,” Self said.
