KU Basketball Fans Can Own a Piece of the 2008 Final Four Floor

Aug. 11, 2008

Lawrence, Kan. –

Kansas basketball fans now have the opportunity to own a piece of the floor on which the Jayhawks won the 2008 NCAA Championship.

On this court, Brandon Rush scored 25 points to lead the domination of the North Carolina Tar Heels in the national semifinals and Darrell Arthur poured in 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the overtime victory over the Memphis Tigers in the national championship game.

One of the finest senior classes in Kansas history, including Russell Robinson, Darnell Jackson, Sasha Kaun, Rodrick Stewart and Jeremy Case, played their final two collegiate games on this floor. Perhaps the greatest shot in the history of Kansas Basketball swished through the net on this floor after leaving the hand of Mario Chalmers – a moment that will live forever in Kansas athletics history.

To purchase a piece of the floor, log on to www.kuathletics.com/floor. Pieces are available in 11-3/4 inch squares, and come engraved with a special logo and the scores of this year’s two Final Four games. The cost of each square is $225. Floor pieces only available for sale online.
