Kansas men's basketball will host its 115th-year celebration on Feb. 23 when the Jayhawks play host to TCU. More than 200 former Kansas coaches, players and managers will be recognized at halftime of the game. Included in the celebration is the 25th anniversary of Kansas' 1988 NCAA National Championship team. For the KU-TCU contest, the 2012-13 Jayhawks will wear retro attire resembling the 1988 uniforms, warm-ups, etc.
Former KU legend JoJo White will be on hand prior to the contest, autographing his book "Make It Count" in the Booth Family Hall of Athletics. White was a two-time All-American in 1968 and 1969 and a three-time All-Big Eight Conference First Team selection while at Kansas. He also left his mark in the NBA with the Boston Celtics. Both Kansas and the Celtics have retired White's jerseys. "Make It Count" is a book described as one athlete's career that was the product of genuine good values.
