College Basketball: Kansas Jayahawks

LAWRENCE, Kan. (TNS) — Kansas guard Lagerald Vick will forgo his senior season to pursue professional basketball, he said Friday.

Vick averaged 12.1 points and 4.8 rebounds for the Jayhawks last season while earning All-Big 12 honorable mention honors.

“I believe the time is right for him to move on, explore his options as a professional and see what develops,” KU coach Bill Self said in a statement. “We won a lot of games with Lagerald over the last three years and appreciate everything he’s done for Kansas and our basketball program. We are 100 percent supportive of his decision and wish him the very best in whatever path this takes him.”
