Kansas Basketball Senior Night: Brady Morningstar, Mario Little And Tyrel Reed

It's senior night for the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team which means it's the last home game of the year. Three seniors -- Brady Morningstar, Mario Little and Tyrel Reed -- will be playing their final game at Allen Fieldhouse. All three players talked this week about the senior class and what they've meant to each other.


"I don't really know how to explain the senior class. Two Kansas boys and a kid from Chicago, I guess," said Morningstar, who has been with the program the longest and is currently the oldest player in the Big 12 Conference. "Everybody's time comes, whether you come in with a certain group or redshirt and leave with a different group. I'm excited that I can get on with other parts of my life, but it's sad because I've been here so long. I have a lot of great memories. I'm happy to leave with Tyrel and Mario."    


"It's like we've all been together for four years," said Little. "Brady's been around a lot of people and seen a lot of people go, so he probably feels it the most, but I've been here three years, and I feel just as much a part of the Kansas family as Tyrel and Brady. I feel like a senior. I feel like one of the older guys here. All good things come to an end. It's going to be tough, but you just try to enjoy it and appreciate what you've done in your life."


"We've been together for three years now," said Reed. "We've meshed really well together. We've had completely different teams every year, but we've grown really close, and I've grown to love those guys."
