We met at a KU basketball game in Lincoln when she tried to run me over with her car (allegedly). She’ll be providing JHT ongoing updates about an exciting film project coming soon to a theatre near you!)

Last week on this blog, we introduced Jayhawkers, the Kevin Willmott film about Phog Allen, Wilt Chamberlain, Chancellor Frank Murphy and their effect on college basketball – a parallel to the Civil Rights movement that changed the country.

The film is in pre-production now, but to keep moving forward, the filmmakers need your help. The Jayhawkers team has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $50,000 by August 2. Any amount is appreciated, and donors at all levels will be rewarded – my favorite incentive is the game of HORSE against former Jayhawk and NBA star Scot Pollard (an executive producer).

Please give what you can. I am donating because I love my school, I am proud of our basketball tradition, and I am prouder still of our progressive heritage.
