June 27, 2008 in print edition on 1B
The Kansas University basketball team scripted some suspenseful moments on the way to the 2008 national championship, and NBA Draft night turned out to be more of the same for the Jayhawks. Three dramatic storylines evolved as Brandon Rush, Darrell Arthur and Mario Chalmers combined to make Kansas history. For the first time since 1989, when the draft was trimmed to two rounds, more than two Jayhawks were selected in a single draft. Rush was a lottery pick, Arthur became the sympathetic figure who dropped lower than expected, and Chalmers, who will always hold a special spot in KU history, was taken in the second round.
