Bill Self comments on incident

? The following is a statement from Kansas head coach Bill Self involving KU men’s basketball sophomore Rodrick Stewart in an incident that happened at a local establishment – Abe and Jake’s – early Sunday.

“We are aware that last night at Abe and Jake’s more than one fight broke out inside,” Self said. “All reports we have received are that a fight broke out on a crowded set of stairs that Rodrick Stewart was using to exit the premises. Rodrick was hit over the head with some form of blunt instrument while he was exiting. All reports we have received indicate Rodrick had no involvement in the altercation other than him being hit over the head while going up the stairs. He received four staples to the top of his head and is feeling fine today. Rodrick’s being at Abe and Jake’s did not violate team policies.”
