Reed All About It
Driven to Be A JayhawkBook - 2011
Of all the wonderful players who have worn the crimson and blue for The University of Kansas basketball program through the years, only one can claim to be the "winningest" Jayhawk of all- Tyrel Reed.The son of a coach from Burlington, Kansas, Reed developed into an important leader and "glue guy" for the Jayhawks. He was an excellent outside shooter, sinking 170 three-point field goals in his career, and a clutch free throw shooter, with an .810 success rate.Reed was a champion on the court-as part of the Jayhawks' National Championship in 2008- and in the classroom, as a three-time Academic All-Big 12 First Team member. He was part of more wins than any other player in the storied history of the Kansas program.In his book, Reed describes what it was like to play for Coach Bill Self, how the game has changed with "one-and-done" freshmen players, and how he was able to excel academically despite the demands of basketball practice and road trips.
