LAWRENCE, Kan. – Goals were lowered and all had fun as the University of Kansas men’s basketball team played host to more than 100 Special Olympians at Allen Fieldhouse for the 23rd Annual Wilt Chamberlain Basketball Clinic Sunday afternoon.

“This is an event we look forward to every year,” Kansas head coach Bill Self said. “Our players and staff have a great time with these Special Olympians. You can see everyone really enjoying this, whether it be when they make a shot or dunk or pass.”

The clinic is sponsored by former KU legend Wilt Chamberlain who left the money to fund the event in his estate.
