Kansas team manager Chris Huey is a 6'7" senior and former NAIA college basketball player who had to stop playing due to three separate instances of a collapsed lung. On Saturday, Jayhawks head coach Bill Self and the team showed their appreciation for Huey by letting him dress for their game against TCU. He even got a chance to get in the game...

Per Self...
quote:

“He’s unbelievably bright,” Self will say. “You can tell him anything, and he’ll remember it. He’s been a big asset for us.”

So much so, in fact, that Self approached Huey in the weeks leading up to Saturday’s game against TCU. After a season on the scout team, Self wanted to offer a reward: Huey would suit up against TCU, don a Kansas uniform and take his place on the bench -- just like the rest of the players. In the days before the game, Self kept the gesture quiet. But around the KU basketball office, staffers were busy putting him on the official roster, finding proper gear and adding his head shot to the pregame notes.
Well done, Jayhawks.
