Former Jayhawks to Roll Out for Fifth Annual Rock Chalk Roundball Classic

June 6, 2013

LAWRENCE, Kan. – The fifth annual Rock Chalk Roundball Classic returns to Lawrence, Kan., on Thursday, June 13, at Free State High School. More than former 25 Jayhawks and celebrities will be playing and coaching in the event that raises money each year for local kids fighting cancer.

Beneficiaries of the 2013 Rock Chalk Roundball Classic are Calin Strahm, a four-year-old from Shawnee, Kan., and Jakob Askins, a 14-year-old from Topeka, Kan.

Not only will fans be treated to the exhibition basketball game featuring former KU players from the last three decades, but there’s also a free concert during the pregame, a 25-minute postgame autograph session and a chance to win a car from Crown Automotive of Lawrence. Doors open a Free State High School at 5:30 p.m. with the event starting at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $7 and can be purchased in advance at the 23rd St. Brewery in Lawrence, AAA on Wanamaker Ave. in Topeka and Dr. Leiszler’s Dentistry in Baldwin, Kan. Tickets are also available on game day at the gym.
