TOPEKA (AP) — The state Senate will take a few minutes from its first day back at work to recognize Kansas guard Tyrel Reed for his achievements on and off the basketball court.
The Burlington native was the lone Jayhawk to start every game during the past season as he led KU with 72 3-pointers and 56 steals. He finished his career with a 132-17 record, the best by a Kansas player in a four-year period.
But Reed is also being honored by the Senate on Wednesday afternoon for his academic record. He graduated in December and has been accepted into KU Medicine's physical therapy school, and was named to the Academic All-America First Team.
