Does interim athletic director Sean Lester sit courtside with a personal friend as his guest at home games the way Lew Perkins did?
No. The seats next to the south end of the KU bench occupied by Perkins, the former athletic director, and his guest, John Lungstrum, a U.S. District Court judge who lives in Lawrence, now are filled by the athletic department’s sports information director, Chris Theisen, and Annie Werner, the department’s interactive marketing coordinator. Lungstrum had been Perkins’ guest in the courtside seat for the past four seasons. Lester sits on the corner seat of the north baseline, close to the north end of the Kansas bench, and does not bring a guest. Larry Hare, assistant AD of equipment operations, sat next to Lester at the exhibition game against Emporia State.
