Men's Basketball Brightens Day for KU Medical Patients

Jan. 4, 2011


Kansas men’s basketball coach Bill Self along with senior Mario Little and sophomores Elijah Johnson and Jeff Withey took time to visit with patients and their families at the KU Medical Center Monday morning.

Self and the players were on the pediatrics floor and pediatrics ICU level. While posing for pictures with patients, they also handed out and signed t-shirts during their visit.

“It’s amazing the impact we have on the patients,” said Withey. “Just talking with them and seeing how happy that makes them is really an incredible feeling. The guys and I really enjoy visiting with the kids and I think we get as much out of the experience as the patients.”
