Selby in class
Kansas University freshman basketball point guard Josh Selby attended his first classes of the semester Tuesday.
“Going to class. Putting my phone away time to focus,” Selby wrote for his 4,729 followers on Twitter.
“Done with class, that was an exciting class. Happy to be at KU,’’’ Selby reported on a later tweet.
As reported Sunday, the NCAA is allowing Selby to attend class while looking into his eligibility. He has not yet been cleared to play.
“I expected there could be a situation in which things could be looked at, absolutely, no question,” KU men’s basketball coach Bill Self said Tuesday after a media session to discuss athletic director Lew Perkins’ stepping down. “I didn’t anticipate it going into after school started. But also stop and look at what is going on across America. There have been numerous things on many different fronts that keep the NCAA’s plate very full.”
Self said he had no idea when the NCAA might make its final ruling on Selby’s eligibility.
