Who was Kansas University's first black basketball player?
It was La Vannes Squires, a member of the Jayhawks' 1952 NCAA championship team. Squires, a Wichita East High School product, also played for KU in 1953 and 1954.
The 1952 team reunited this weekend and was honored at the KU-Colorado game Saturday. For coverage, see page 7C.
