The stuff of miracles, 25 years later

Posted on Mar 8, 2013 in News and Sports

Where were you on April 4, 1988?

If you’re a KU basketball fan, you know exactly where you were.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the KU basketball team’s miracle run through the 1988 NCAA tournament and national championship win over Oklahoma.

To celebrate the anniversary, a new documentary, “The Miracles,” will premiere on the CBS Sports Network on Monday, Mar. 11 at 7 p.m. (CT)– just in time for March Madness! Watch the trailer below.

We might be biased, but this win may be one of the greatest stories in college basketball history.

“The Miracles” was produced by Erik Ashel, j’00, Tamiko Bullock and Jeffri Chadiha. Kurt Messersmith, j’89, is the executive producer.

A DVD and mobile app will be released later this month. The DVD will include over 25 interviews with former coaches, players and media members.

We really do want to know where you were on April 4, 1988. Share your favorite memory of the championship game with us by emailing
