LAWRENCE, Ks. (KCTV) - The University of Kansas men’s basketball team, fresh off a national championship-winning performance Monday night in New Orleans, arrived at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence in time for a rally Tuesday afternoon.

The Jayhawks touched down in Topeka just before 3 p.m. and were greeted by a large welcome party at the airport.

The team then bused to Lawrence, where thousands of Kansas students and fans had gathered for a rally.

The Jayhawks defeated the North Carolina Tar Heels 72-69 in the NCAA Tournament title game Monday night in New Orleans, the team’s first national championship since 2008, and head coach Bill Self’s second national title with the school.

A date and time for a parade has not yet been announced.
