Devonte Graham has a chance to be the star of the NCAA tournament this March if Kansas can make a Final Four run. He’s a four-year guy, he’s one of those players who you feel like has been at Kansas forever (shout out old ass Perry Ellis) and this year he finally became the lead guy on the team. That helped him get a Big 12 Player of the Year trophy and in the discussion for Naismith POY.
It seems like everyone is picking Duke to come out of that Midwest region, but Kansas is still Kansas. They’re still a #1 seed and have a legit title contending team. If they make a deep run, Graham will the reason why. He went bananas in the Big 12 tournament.
So let’s meet his girlfriend Avery. She’s a Kansas cheerleader. Actually, she’s a Rock Chalk dancer. Not sure the difference, but I’m guessing she can do more than hold signs and a few cheers.
