Kansas basketball’s Ochai Agbaji says thank you once more at banquet

Kansas guard Ochai Agbaji celebrates after his team's win against North Carolina in the championship game of the NCAA tournament on April 4, 2022, in New Orleans.

LAWRENCE — Ochai Agbaji’s next steps are clear.

After a historic senior season of college basketball at Kansas, Agbaji plans to make his way out west to train in the Phoenix area. After helping lead the Jayhawks to a national championship earlier this month in New Orleans, it’s time for him to embark on a professional career. The NBA combine awaits in May, followed by the draft in June.

But before all that, Agbaji had another opportunity to celebrate the 2021-22 season with his teammates and coaches Thursday at Kansas’ banquet.

Inside Allen Fieldhouse, where he’s spent so much time over the past four years, he was able to re-live the run that led to the program’s latest national title — the second of head coach Bill Self’s tenure. Agbaji can now move on as one of the program’s most accomplished athletes.
