By visiting www.facebook.com/ILoveCollegeHoops, Kansas fans can vote for KU’s student section as the top student section in college basketball. The Naismith Student Section of the Year Award, which is presented through a partnership of The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), a division of IMG College, and the Atlanta Tipoff Club, administrators of the Naismith Awards, is dedicated to celebrating fans that love college hoops and provide support to their college basketball team with devotion and passion.

“We’ve known for a long time that KU’s student section is the best in the country,” said KU Head Coach Bill Self. “It would be neat if our fans visited the I Love College Hoops Facebook page and make sure our students win this award.”

The Naismith Student Section of the Year Award will be determined through two rounds of public votes, combined with voting by the Naismith Awards Board of Selectors. That board will review criteria such as the student section’s name and attendance, as well as photos, video and a write-up submitted by the nominating school. Complete details on the selection process can be found at facebook.com/ilovecollegehoops.

Nearly 80 schools representing 21 conferences are vying for the title.
