Bill Self has suspended Tyshawn Taylor according to an announcement made by the athletic department on Monday. The junior point guard was crapping on bloated expectations to the tune of 8.8 points and 4.7 assists per game (I remember Billy Donovan was hot on this kid). With Taylor out freshman phenom Josh Shelby will likely see the majority of the minutes at the point guard spot. Selby was also the nation’s number one recruit according to Rivals.com, but has had his share of injury issues lately.
Not a huge blow for the Jayhawks, but with the Big 12 title on the line, and a potential #1 seed in the big dance hanging out there, it’s probably something they’d rather avoid…AMIRIGHT?
