Mitch Lightfoot grateful for KU’s seniors and Jayhawks’ postseason run


San Antonio — After the Kansas basketball season ended at the Final Four with a loss to Villanova, sophomore forward Mitch Lightfoot expressed his gratitude for what seniors Devonte’ Graham, Svi Mykhailiuk and Clay Young helped the Jayhawks accomplish.

Although some doubted this KU team’s ability to live up to the program’s standards a few months ago, Lightfoot said the skepticism helped the players en route to Big 12 titles and four wins in the NCAA Tournament.

Lightfoot expects this March’s postseason run will prove beneficial for him and other Jayhawks who will be back for the 2018-19 season.

I hope we get to see Mitch play more next year. He certainly made progress this year and did what he could to help the team.
