KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The honors keep rolling in for Kansas’ Ochai Agbaji.
The Big 12 Player of the Year and consensus All-American will be honored by the North Kansas City Schools with Och Park Day on Monday.
On the day of the national championship, students, faculty and staff of all schools, including Agbaji’s high school Oak Park, are encouraged to wear all of their blue and crimson in support of Agbaji and the Jayhawks as they face the North Carolina Tarheels later that night.
“Och Park, that was actually a nickname that I had in high school that other schools would call our school instead of just Oak Park,” Agbaji said at a press conference on Monday.
“It’s really special. It’s actually huge motivation seeing all those people and all the support that I get from my high school and the Kansas City area. So it’s just special.”
The national championship begins at 8:20 p.m.
