The kids, with some of their parents taking up the invitation to join them, spent New Year’s Day with the Jayhawks’ women’s basketball team.

Kindergarten through eighth graders participated in drills with current KU players and coaches on Naismith Court in Allen Fieldhouse. Participants rotated through seven stations that included instruction on passing, shooting, dribbling and defense. The two hour clinic concluded with an autograph and picture session with KU players.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” />
