Jayhawkers Movie Comes To Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW--It was lights, camera, action at Topeka High School Saturday. The school was turned into a municipal auditorium circa the 1950s for the "Jayhawkers" movie.

A production team spent the weekend recreating the 1957 triple overtime game between Kansas and North Carolina.

Filmmakers researched Wilt Chamberlain, Fog Allen and Chancellor Franklin Murphy's impact on the university and race relations in Lawrence and Kansas. KU forward Justin Wesley will take on the role of Wilt Chamberlain in the film.
