Texas Tech Fans Chant ‘We Want Kevin’ to Kevin McCullar

Heartland College Sports – An Independent Big 12 Today Blog

Kansas guard Kevin McCullar missed his second-straight game on Monday night against his former team while sidelined due to a lingering knee injury.

Texas Tech handed the Jayhawks one of their worst losses in program history, and after building a 22-point lead, fans in attendance started chanting at the former Red Raider, Kevin McCullar.

 

McCullar started his career off in Lubbock and spent three seasons with the Red Raiders from 2019-2022. In three seasons with the team, the Texas native averaged 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game on 44.3% shooting from the field.

Since transferring to Kansas ahead of the 2022-23, McCullar has turned into one of the best players in the Big 12 Conference with All-American level numbers. McCullar has averaged 15.1 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game for the Jayhawks and continues to make headlines on a nightly basis.

While Texas Tech fans were eager to see McCullar face off against his former team on Monday night, McCullar’s knee injury kept the reunion from taking place, resulting in the “We want Kevin” chants raining down from the United Supermarkets Arena.

Unfortunately for both programs, Monday was the last matchup this season between Kansas and Texas Tech, which means that McCullar will end his career having stepped on the court in Lubbock for the last time.
