Oct. 15, 2012

LAWRENCE, Kan. – The University of Kansas and KU basketball will be featured in ESPN Films’ 30 for 30, There’s No Place Like Home, Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m. Central.

On December 10, 2010, Sotheby’s auctioned off one of the most important most important historical documents in sports history – James Naismith’s original rules of basketball. Kansas alum and KU Williams Education Fund donor David Booth bought the rules for more than $3 million.

There’s No Place Like Home is the story of one fan’s quest to fight for this epoch American artifact at auction and bring the rules “home” to Lawrence, Kan., where Naismith coached and taught for more than 40 years.

Here is the trailer for the Oct. 16 show – http://espn.go.com/30for30/film?page=theres-no-place-like-home.
