KU’s Wayne Selden returning for sophomore season

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Kansas guard Wayne Selden announced Tuesday that he will return for his sophomore season.

The 6-foot-5 Selden averaged nearly 10 points for the Jayhawks, whose season ended with a 60-57 loss to Stanford on Sunday in the third round of the NCAA tournament.

Selden was considered a first-round talent coming out of high school, but an up-and-down campaign may have caused his stock to drop. Most draft projections had him going late in the first round or at some point in the second round.

Fellow freshman Andrew Wiggins has already said he plans to enter the draft, while 7-foot center Joel Embiid is still weighing his options. Most expect the Cameroon native to be a top-five pick despite a back injury that caused him to miss the NCAA tournament.
