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.
