As Kentucky cut down the nets at the end of the National Championship Game in New Orleans, thousands of African children had another reason to celebrate.
As one Ugandan boy told Flipside reporters through an interpreter, “I’ve always really liked the pretty birdy on Kansas’ court. It’s awesome to get championship t-shirts with such a cool design on it.”
“We are really happy to be able to do this for the children of African,” explained Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor, “We gave it a solid 90% out there today. We truly felt their support and encouragement behind us and it really affected how we performed on the court.”
Coach Bill Self added, “We just wanted to get this meaningful loss for them. They need those shirts a hell of a lot more than we do.”
