The Rock Chalk Roundball Classic teams up with some of your favorite Jayhawk basketball stars each June to put on a charity basketball game in Lawrence. Last year, our game featured 40 former Jayhawks or KU celebs.
Participants of past games have included Mario Chalmers, Ben McLemore, Rex Walters, Darnell Jackson, Cole Aldrich, Billy Thomas, Wayne Simien, Tyshawn Taylor, Aaron Miles, Sasha Kaun, Russell Robinson, Todd Reesing, David Beaty and boxing champion, Victor Ortiz.
Our mission is to use our platform with Kansas Basketball to raise money for local families that are currently fighting cancer. Now 7 years deep and nearly $150,000 raised, the Roundball Classic’s reach is stronger than ever.
