Devonte’ Graham recalls social media doubters after helping KU win outright Big 12 title
Kansas basketball seniors Clay Young, Devonte’ Graham and Svi Mykhailiuk, at the conclusion of an emotional and rewarding Senior Night at Allen Fieldhouse, discussed all that went into the 80-70 victory over Texas — and then some.
Fresh off of securing an outright Big 12 championship for the Jayhawks, Graham recalled the doubt regarding this team that he observed on social media earlier in the season.
“I don’t know if everybody seen that, but I seen it,” Graham said of a message that suggested he and his teammates didn’t deserve to wear the Kansas uniform. “It just put like a little chip on my shoulder and just let me go out and lead better and want it more. I know we all wanted it, obviously. But I think the negative comments and seeing people doubt us definitely made us have a chip on our shoulder.”
