Kansas Athletics staff photographer Jeff Jacobsen shares his memories of what he saw "Through the Lens" from his 23-year career with the Jayhawks. This one features "Water Works," an image taken after KU's victory over Duke in the 2018 Elite Eight.
As you know, we are in unprecedented times right now, certainly something very few of us ever thought we would experience. As we began the journey through uncharted territory late last week and the decision-making process that has followed, the main focus has been and will continue to be the safety and wellbeing of our student-athletes.
In addition to the actions taken today by the Big 12 Conference and NCAA, Kansas Athletics will cancel all planned fan activities surrounding the men's and women's Big 12 and NCAA Basketball Championships, including pregame parties and pep rallies.
The Big 12 Conference announced the recipients of its highest academic honor, the Dr. Gerald Lage Academic Achievement Award, with 22 Kansas student-athletes earning the accolade. The 22 KU student-athletes are the most recipients in the history of this award and bested the previous KU high of 14 in 2018.
