Comment from Bill Self on the Status of Josh Selby

Oct. 27, 2010

Comment from Bill Self, KU men’s basketball coach, in response to media requests for comment on the status of KU freshman basketball student-athlete Josh Selby:

“Josh’s status for competition hasn’t changed. While he has met NCAA academic requirements to be on aid, practice and compete this year, we continue to work with the NCAA as we review his amateur status. We will not play Josh in games until that process is complete and a decision is rendered.

“We support and respect the process, and hope that it is over sooner rather than later. But we don’t expect a decision on this before the regular season begins. We will not comment further until the process is complete.”
