The MU-KU rivalry might have ended for some Mizzou sports, but for the Mizzou Wheelchair Basketball Team, the rivalry is fresh. These MU student athletes take on Kansas Wheelhawks Feb. 10 in Lawrence, rebounding from a four-game intercollegiate tournament held in Columbia Jan. 25.
Fueling their drive is the recent announcement by the National Wheelchair Basketball Association that Ron Lykins, the Mizzou Wheelchair Basketball head coach, will coach the United States men’s wheelchair basketball team for the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio.
Fans eager to support the Mizzou team and help raise awareness about disabilities are taking part in the Mizzou Wheelchair Relay Saturday, Feb. 9. Proceeds benefit the Mizzou Wheelchair Scholarship Fund.
