Way to Go Jayhawks!

What an amazing, memorable game. That shot! That ONE SHINING MOMENT!

Chalmers, who may have otherwise gone away as another small part of KU history has etched his name as one of the greatest heroes of the Kansas game.

Here's a nice story from the ESPN article:

Ronnie Chalmers reached into his pocket for some divine guidance.

On a piece of paper, he'd written two verses from Psalms: 46:10 and 46:1. He pulled them out and read them to himself.

"Be still, and know that I am God," reads 46:10.

"God is a refuge and strength. A very present help in trouble," reads 46:1.

"We were in trouble at that time," Ronnie said.

While I'm not sure God was rooting for the Jayhawks last night (well, of COURSE he was!), but it's nice that the Chalmers know who to turn to when they are in trouble.

And though I think Mario's miracle shot made its way through his skill rather than God's hand, a lot of Kansans were throwing prayers toward the heavens in that brief moment.

Congratulations to our Jayhawks! We're proud to call you ours! ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK~
