“It’s been a pleasure and a blessing. I hope this doesn’t define us as a group,” said senior Tyrel Reed about his last game as a Jayhawk.

You've played with so much heart here at KU, Tyrel - I hope you keep the same integrity in all that you do from now on, man. Thank you.
The hardest thing about the tournament for me is watching the seniors walk off the court for the last time. One loss is nothing against an entire career record. Tyrel - You have graced living rooms across the country with tens of thousands of collective fist pumps simultaneously celebrating your 3-pointers swishing through the basket. You have brought such class, integrity, and work ethic to the court throughout your student athlete career. I look forward to hearing Bob and Chris interview you during future half-times, when you join other KU legends in the stands cheering future players. Wishing you continued success as you take your winning ways to meet new challenges. Thanks for a great four years! Rock Chalk!
Tyrel. Classy in victory. Classy in defeat. While it may be little solace at the moment, Tyrel, you have your whole adult life ahead of you, and trust me, you're gonna have a wonderful and enjoyable life. And remember, you'll always be a proud Jayhawk.
Tyrell- You are a true prototype of the ideal K.U. Jayhawk. We all wish you the best, and thank you for giving it your all for four years! It will be fun for all K.U. fans to see what you do in the next chapter of your life!
It's safe to say, you could fill Allen Fieldhouse several times over with all the Kansas kids that would love to play four years at KU. This one game, it doesn't define his career.
