June 9, 2009


Several former Kansas University basketball players will participate in the Rock Chalk Roundball Classic at 7 p.m. Thursday at Free State High.

The scrimmage is a fundraiser to benefit the family of former Lawrence youth minister Brandon White, who recently died after a bout with cancer.

Some former Jayhawks expected to attend: Brennan Bechard, Greg Gurley, Darnell Jackson, Sasha Kaun, Matt Kleinmann, Christian Moody, Russell Robinson, Wayne Simien, Bud Stallworth, Rodrick Stewart, Billy Thomas and Stephen Vinson.

The game is expected to take an hour. There will be autographs afterward and a raffle of the competitors’ jerseys. Other items will be included in the raffle. Admission is $5.
