What a start to the college basketball season! I was so thrilled to be back courtside with my buddy Dan Shulman.
I also had a blast sitting and talking before the game with Holly Rowe and Bobby Knight. The matchup between #1 Kansas and Memphis was part of the Showcase Hall of Fame Classic in St. Louis.
I was proud to be included in a courtside ceremony before the game introducing several members of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, such as, Lenny Wilkens, Bob Pettit, Rick Barry, Walt Bellamy and Cliff Hagan.
Kansas had a real scare as Memphis put forth a gallant effort. But in the end it was too much Cole Aldrich, as the Jayhawks prevailed 57-55.
