Kansas Sophomore Jeremy Case to Redshirt the 2004-05 Season

Dec. 3, 2004

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas men’s basketball player Jeremy Case has decided to redshirt the 2004-05 season, head coach Bill Self announced Friday.

“We think Jeremy is going to be a good player and we really don’t redshirt guys unless we know they will contribute,” said Self.

Case has seen limited practice this fall due to a groin injury. The McAlester, Okla., guard has yet to suit up for a game this season.

“When I first got back (this fall) the option was there to compete and when I got hurt it made the opportunity harder,” Case said. “Not getting back before the games started really made me decide to redshirt.”

As a freshman Case played 21 games last season and averaged 3.9 minutes and 1.2 points per game. He scored eight points in the win against Fort Hays State and five points in a KU victory versus Oklahoma.

“My role is to work as hard as I can in practice and help my teammates get ready for the teams we will be playing,” Case said. “I really believe redshirting is best for the team and I want what’s best for the team.”

Case joins freshman walk-on Matt Kleinmann as a redshirt for the 2004-05 season.
