KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Overland Park Mayor Curt Skoog proclaimed Tuesday as "Christian Braun Day" during Monday night's city council meeting.

The city's official proclamation recognizes Braun's performance against North Carolina in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball title game and "urge(s) all citizens to congratulate Christian Braun and the Kansas Jayhawks on their accomplishments."

Braun was not in attendance at the meeting, but he did take note of the honor on social media.
