Dinner, Drinks & Dancing
Entertainment for the 2013 Basketball Boogie will feature the musical stylings of Kansas City's own Boulevard Band. A full open bar and plenty of great food from local restaurants will fuel a long night on the dance floor.
A Star-Gazing Extravaganza
Join co-hosts Coach Bill Self and college basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb as well as many of your favorite KU coaches, players and Jayhawk personalities--you don't want to miss it!
Retro Hoops & Disco Inspired Attire
Dust off your adidas Superstars and dress in creative basketball-inspired or vintage disco themes. If dressing up isn't your thing, just come casual. For ideas and inspiration, check out the photo galleries from previous years.
