The Dagger - NCAAB

It's not just Kansas coach Bill Self donning a disco-era leisure suit and thick gold chains this year to promote his charitable foundation's annual summer fundraising event.

The rest of the Jayhawks also appear in full '70s attire in the video below announcing the return of Bill's Basketball Boogie, which will take place June 4 in Kansas City.

Yes, that's 7-foot Jeff Withey in the Elvis-style hair and wallpaper-esque shirt dancing as though he's reeling a fish in. Yes, that's teammate Thomas Robinson rocking the oversized fro, white vest and pastel blue shirt while doing the robot. And yes, that's the rest of next season's Jayhawks donning looks straight out of Boogie Nights, complete with obnoxious wide-collared shirts with several buttons undone for maximum chest hair exposure.

Credit the Kansas players for being willing to dress in ridiculous costumes and poke fun at themselves for a good cause. Proceeds from the fundraiser will support Self's Assists Foundation, which serves a variety of youth initiatives in the Lawrence community.
