Former KU guard Lagerald Vick says goodbye
Senior Night took place on March 9 and went by with very little fanfare seeing how the 2018-19 Kansas basketball roster had no seniors in uniform that night.
But Thursday afternoon, just before 1:30 p.m., the lone senior on the 2018-19 KU roster finally got to say his goodbye.
“I truly appreciate everyone who supported me and embraced me during my 4 year stay at the University Of Kansas,” former KU guard Lagerald Vick wrote in a Twitter post. “Thank You to my coaches, family & friends, but most importantly thanks to the best fans in the world!!! #RockChalkJayHawk”
Vick’s farewell Tweet was accompanied by a highlight video of his time at Kansas that ran for 2:20 and featured moments from all four seasons of his 1,000-point KU career.
Vick, who delivered an up-and-down college career packed with highlights and head-scratchers, missed the final 13 games of the 2018-19 season after taking an indefinite leave of absence in early February to tend to a personal matter back home in Memphis.
At the time, and for the better part of the next 3-4 weeks, the door remained open for Vick to return to the team. But it never happened and KU’s loss at Kansas State on Feb. 5 went down as the final official game in Vick’s KU career.
Here’s a look at the Tweet and video of Vick saying goodbye.
