Kansas University junior guard Tyshawn Taylor, who missed the past two games while on suspension, will be available for Wednesday's game against Texas A&M.

"He will be in uniform tomorrow," KU coach Bill Self told the Journal-World Tuesday night, not adding any other details about possible playing time.

On Monday, Self had said KU seniors Mario Little, Brady Morningstar and Tyrel Reed would start the Senior Day game with the Morris twins. He said Elijah Johnson would be first guard off the bench, whether Taylor was off suspension or not.

Earlier Tuesday, on Scott Van Pelt's national ESPN radio show, Self was asked if there was an update on Taylor's status: "No, not really, but I've been pleased with him and his attitude. I told him I was going to look at some things that I asked him to take care of including academic responsibilities, all these different things and he's been very responsible and responded well, but I'm going to wait until I get a final report."

pigballin,

Well said. Some of these players don't know what they have until it's gone. I've been rooting more for Elijia all year after the football fiasco.
