Mohammed graduated with Kentucky's Class of 2020 on Friday with a bachelor's degree.

"It's that desire to finish that was my motivation," said Mohammed. "I consider myself a pretty smart guy and having that void of considering myself alumni of the University of Kentucky but not actually completing the courses to graduate just ate at me."

"My time at Kentucky was amazing from a basketball standpoint," added Mohammed. "I think it was one of our most successful periods in the sense of making it to championship games and deep into the tournament."
