UF point guard to play against KU

December 8, 2013


University of Florida point guard Scottie Wilbekin was cleared to practice and will play Tuesday against Kansas University at the O’Connell Center, the Gainesville (Fla.) Sun reported.

The 6-foot-2 Wilbekin returned to practice over the weekend after suffering a sprained ankle in last Monday’s 65-64 loss at Connecticut, according to the school’s website and the Sun.

McDonald’s All-American freshman point guard Kasey Hill remains questionable for the 6 p.m., Central time, game. Hill, who suffered a high-ankle sprain Nov. 18 against Southern, began individual drills Wednesday but has yet to work out with the team.

Wilbekin missed the first six games of the season because of a disciplinary suspension. In the three games since his return, Wilbekin is averaging 11.3 points, 5.7 assists and 3.1 steals

Florida and KU will each take 6-2 records into the game.
