LAWRENCE - Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little today commended fans for safely celebrating the University of Kansas' 64-62 win over Ohio State in the Final Four on Saturday night:
"I want to thank KU fans for the class they showed in celebrating the Jayhawks' Final Four victory. I also want to thank the nearly 200 law enforcement officers from around the area who helped ensure a safe celebration, as well as downtown residents and businesses for welcoming fans to Massachusetts Street. The nation was watching and the spotlight will be even brighter Monday. I know Jayhawks will show the same class after the championship game as they did last night."
Kansas Athletics will open Allen Fieldhouse at 7 p.m. to fans wanting to watch the game. Thousands of fans watched the KU-OSU game there Saturday night.
