``It worked out real well. I had fun and liked what I saw,'' Hinrich told Mike Sullivan of Insider's Report Sunday night. ``I wanted to get down there, see the school and play basketball with the guys.''

He played in a pair of pick-up basketball games with the Jayhawks.

``It was all the players, plus Rex Walters and Billy Thomas,'' Hinrich said of two former Jayhawks. ``I thought I played all right. I really liked the players.''

Hinrich, who visited Oklahoma two weeks ago, will not make an official visit to Iowa State, his third finalist. He orally committed to Iowa State last year, but reneged on the commitment after coach Tim Floyd accepted a job with the Chicago Bulls.

He knows the school well enough without having to visit Ames, he indicated. He said he would think about pros and cons of the three schools and try to come up with a decision well before the week-long signing period which starts Nov. 11.

``That's my last visit. I won't take any more,'' Hinrich said.
