Seniors get their moment

10 Straight Big 12 Championship trophies were unveiled after the blowout win over Texas Tech. Kansas's 3 seniors and possibly Andrew Wiggins experienced their last game at Allen Fieldhouse. Niko Roberts winded down memory lane of his Jayhawk career during his Senior Night Speech. Tarik Black had one of the more emotional and memorable senior speeches to date. And Justin Wesley, barring his sprouting acting career, gave us his entire journey from being part of Late Night for the first time since a 4th grader All the way up to the night his whole family will never forget.

In a game where Joel Embiid was given a game off. Tarik Black stepped in his starting role. Not missing a beat at all. Contributing for 19 points, grabbing rebounds that only a man could. Displaying raw physicality at a key time of season. Naadir Tharpe played his role by orchestrating the offense to the right notes. By coming off the bench in turn of point guard Niko Roberts.

Knowing, Joel Embiid resting on the Kansas sideline wearing a suit and tie tonight. The rest and reassurance will become vital for him when the moment is right for the Jayhawks. But on this night, where Kansas was in no shape of struggling with an inferior team such as Texas Tech. The 3 seniors were the stars on the stage, no one else.

With the season winding down, when the season starts to turn into "2nd Term." A night like this was beneficial for Kansas. Health and momentum is the main concern for Bill Self and the rest of the team moving forward. As it should be, this night was made for entertainment, reflecting on this night that all these players would never forget.
