UMKC welcomed basketball teams from several schools around the area to play in a basketball tournament hosted by UMKC recreational teams from UMKC, the University of Kansas, the University of Missouri, Northwestern Missouri State and more. Teams played an all day tournament at the Swinney Recreation Center in honor of Jeremiah “JD” Desu, a former Intramural Sports employee.

“The club team really enjoyed the opportunity to travel to another campus to play some basketball,” said a member of the University of Missouri club team.

Teams came together to play several friendly games of basketball while several Swinney gym-goers watched from above and cheered on the players.
