A native of McAlester, Oklahoma, Case played in 94 games while at Kansas and won four Big 12 regular season and three Big 12 postseason tournament championships. Including the 2008 title, Case was part of three NCAA Elite Eight teams while playing at KU.
A redshirt in 2004-05, Case earned his bachelor’s degree in communications in 2007 and was a two-time Academic All-Big 12 First Team honoree in 2006 and 2008.
