When the Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets faced off in an NBA matchup on Monday, three former Kansas Jayhawks stars all met on the court at tip-off. Former teammates Jalen Wilson and Ochai Agbaji started opposite each other, while rookie Gradey Dick was also in the starting five for Toronto.

It was an especially memorable night for Wilson, who made his second-ever NBA start. He scored 12 points, grabbed five rebounds, and assisted two baskets in Brooklyn's 96-88 win over Toronto. He played 30 minutes and shot 4-for-10 from the field while connecting on 1-of-4 attempts from beyond the arc.

Agbaji had an impressive outing in the loss, scoring 11 points, taking in five rebounds, and recording one steal and one assist. It was the fourth game in a row that he tallied double digits in the points column. He is averaging 7.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.3 assists since being dealt to the Raptors from the Utah Jazz at the trade deadline.

Dick had an off-night shooting the ball, hitting just 3-of-11 shot attempts and totaling eight points. He appeared for a team-high 33 minutes with three rebounds, two assists, and one steal to add to his stat line. Dick is averaging 10.8 points in the month of March and has really picked up his play after a slow start.

After the conclusion of the game, all three players joined to take a picture together. You can see it for yourself here:
