College Basketball: Kansas Jayhawks

Nick Collison’s mom, Judy, and dad, Dave, summoned their son to a hallway of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Chesapeake Energy Arena after a recent playoff game against the Utah Jazz.

“We have a surprise visitor for you,” Judy informed the 37-year-old, 15-year NBA veteran, also the second-leading scorer and third-leading rebounder in University of Kansas basketball history.

The guest, Collison discovered soon enough, was his former college coach, Roy Williams, the current head coach at North Carolina.
