Small Town Raises Money To Help Hometown Basketball Legend

Joe Denoyer - February 2, 2018 8:08 am

The tiny Kansas hometown of a legendary former women’s basketball player who set college scoring records is raising money to help its favorite daughter fight a rare form of cancer.
The farming town of Claflin, Kansas, is helping raise money for Jackie Stiles as she prepares for surgery Friday to treat eye cancer.
Students at Central Plains High School set up an online fundraiser Tuesday to help Stiles with some medical costs her insurance won’t cover. The goal is $5,000.
Stiles’ father, Pat Stiles, says he’s “surprised and humbled” that students who don’t personally know his daughter would raise money.
Jackie Stiles put Claflin on the map playing for Missouri State University and later in the WNBA. She currently coaches the university’s women’s basketball team.
