Description:
Adolph Rupp talks about school spirit during his time at the University of Kansas, and mentions a time when a flu epidemic forced attendance to basketball games to be forbidden. He goes on to describe the social aspects of his time in college and at the Jayhawk Cafe. Rupp goes in to great detail about the coaching style of Dr. Forrest "Phog" Allen and his treatment of the players while Rupp was playing basketball for the University of Kansas. Rupp recounts stories of tough practices and trips to games in different cities, including an eventful trip to the 1923 Helms National Championship against the University of Missouri. He then goes in to detail about the origins of basketball and the process Dr. James Naismith went through to form the game. An excerpt of a post-game wrap up is included, detailing the 1954 Kentucky/Indiana All-Star Game.
