Pierce to play in KU Legends game

Paul Pierce and other former KU stars are set to participate in the Legends of the Phog exhibition game on September 24th.

“It’s going to be a spectacular event,” KU coach Bill Self said in a release. "Not very often can you spin a negative into a positive, but we get an opportunity to do so with the NBA lockout.

“It will be great coming back to Lawrence and catching up with some old friends and meeting the current players,” Pierce said. “No place compares to Allen Fieldhouse and the rich tradition that is Kansas basketball. When you are a Jayhawk, you’re a Jayhawk for life.”
