The 5th annual Rock Chalk Roundball Classic raised money to help fight childhood cancer in Lawrence on Thursday night.

Several seasoned veterans returned to help with the cause, including Wayne Simien, Nick Bradford and 88 alum Scooter Barry, as well as some fresh faces, Tyshawn Taylor and Kevin Young.

Bud Stallworth was undefeated as a coach in the classic at 4-0, before his white team fell to the blue team 100-97, Coach by Scot Pollard.

The ticket sales and silent auction raise money for children who are fighting childhood cancer. This year it's estimated that the Classic raised over $20,000 for two local boys fighting cancer.
