In this photo: Senior guard Kailey Klein takes on Notre Dame in the first round game of the NCAA Tournament. The first round game was the team's second appeareance in the NCAA tournament in the past three years. Although CSU fell 86-58 to the Fighting Irish, Klein led all scorers with 31 points, her ninth career 30-point game. The Vikings' all-time scoring leader, she finishes her storied CSU career with 2,140 points. She recently participated in the Prohoops Free Agent Camp in San Antonio, Texas, in conjunction with NCAA Division I Women's Final Four, leading up to the WNBA draft on April 8. Several player agents, WNBA coaches and scouts were in attendance.
More than three years ago, CSU’s own Dr. Michael Kalafatis was working on a research project that dated back years prior to that. Along the way, some of his students placed a compound Kalafatis now calls CancerX on human cancer cells in a petri dish. Oddly, it killed the cells. It wasn’t the outcome he had expected. Leukemia, breast, skin, renal, brain and prostate cancer cells — they all died. Most important, the drug didn’t harm surrounding healthy cells. Click here
