Kansas center Udoka Azubuike was to visit with coach Bill Self on Tuesday night, then likely make an announcement “sometime today (Wednesday)” regarding his impending decision whether to keep his name in the 2018 NBA draft or return to KU for a junior year, Self said Tuesday.

“The decision has to be made in the next 30 hours or whatever, so yeah, I think he’s real close to doing that,” Self said in a conference call with reporters just after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

“He knows he has to do it (make decision soon). Certainly I think it’s OK if he’s going to enter the process why wouldn’t he take the maximum amount of time to try to figure out what all the information is? And I think he’s done that. I don’t see anything negative with that.”
