“College basketball season is right around the corner, and we’re excited to be broadcasting ‘Late Night in the Phog’ again this year,” said Chris Huwe, Metro Sports general manager. “Kansas basketball has a huge following here in the Kansas City area, and we know that the Jayhawks fans are really going to enjoy our coverage Friday night.”
As usual, this year’s “Late Night” event will feature music by the KU pep band, skits by both the men’s and women’s basketball teams, video highlights, coach and player introductions, scrimmages by the KU men’s and women’s teams and more.
