ESPN Films' 30 for 30 series will feature Kansas basketball on Tuesday in the latest installment of the series, There's No Place Like Home.

According to a release, the film centers around a die-hard Kansas Jayhawks fan as he tries to drum up support to purchase at auction the original copy of James Naismith's rules of basketball and "bring them home" to Lawrence, Kan. Naismith invented the game in Springfield, Mass., but brought his rules southwest to the University of Kansas, where the modern-day game as we know it now was put into action.

The rules were auctioned off at Sotheby's on Dec. 10, 2010.

The film prominently features all things Kansas basketball and includes interviews with several Jayhawks alumni and important people throughout college basketball.

You can view the trailer here. In the trailer alone former Kansas hoops coaches Larry Brown and Roy Williams can be seen.

The film airs Tuesday on ESPN at 7 p.m. CT.
