— Kansas University will take a victory lap around the state Capitol on Friday.

Representatives from the national championship basketball team and debate team and Orange Bowl champion football team will have a photo opportunity with Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.

Plans also are under way for the teams to visit the House and Senate chambers that day.

The Jayhawks won their first national basketball title since 1988, while the football team finished 12-1 and defeated Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl to cap one of its most successful seasons.

The debate team finished No. 1 in the nation.


Confrontation 10 years ago

Thank goodness there's at least one woman on the debate team. Otherwise, there'd be some sort of lawsuit accusing the men of being honored more than the women.
