Devonte’ Graham talks about Svi’s game-winning shot, “great” win at Nebraska
LINCOLN, Neb. — Having lost two consecutive games, Devonte’ Graham was happy to see things bounce the way of the Jayhawks down the stretch at Nebraska.
“We just needed this win, period,” Graham said after KU’s 73-72 win. “It’s a great win for us to get that monkey off our back.”
The Jayhawks trailed by 2 with less than 30 seconds left, setting the stage for the biggest shot of the game. Svi Mykhailiuk sprung open in the corner and fired off a 3-pointer.
Graham, who made the pass to Mykhailiuk, never had any doubt of what would happen.
"I had all the confidence in the world in him,” Graham said. “I’ve been around him a long time and seen him shoot a lot of shots.”
