Bill Self Basketball Experience Slated for April

Dec. 8, 2011

LAWRENCE, Kan. – University of Kansas head basketball coach Bill Self has announced the launch of the Bill Self Basketball Experience (BSBE) slated for April 13-15, 2012. Legendary Allen Fieldhouse is the backdrop for this unique fantasy basketball experience involving one of college basketball’s most powerful and tradition-rich programs. The event is for basketball playing and non-basketball playing participants ages 35 and older. Campers will compete in storied Allen Fieldhouse, receive expert coaching from current KU staff and former KU greats and enjoy elite social opportunities including an exclusive dinner at the home of Coach Bill Self. For non-playing participants, the BSBE offers the “Phog Allen Coaching Experience” that allows campers to see the inner workings of collegiate coaching at the highest level as you “match wits” with Bill Self, a two-time national coach of the year who has guided KU to seven-straight conference titles, five conference tournament championships and one national championship. “The University of Kansas is one of college basketball’s most tradition rich programs,” Self says. “I am excited to open the doors to the inner workings of KU basketball for our great fans and other college hoops enthusiasts through this exciting event.” A portion of the proceeds will go to Self’s Assist Foundation, founded in 2006 by Bill and Cindy Self, whose mission is to provide young people access to better lives. Positions in the camp are limited and are secured on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information go to or call 513-519-2436 or e-mail
