TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Expect at least a few chants of ``Rock Chalk, Jayhawk'' to bounce off the Statehouse rotunda this week.

On Friday, legislators and Governor Sebelius will honor the University of Kansas football, basketball and debate teams for their accomplishments.

Men's basketball coach Bill Self will bring members of his national championship team to Topeka.

The football team finished 12-1 and beat Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl, one of the most successful seasons in school history.

The debate team finished tops in the nation based on competition at tournaments and is expected to bring several students to Topeka.
