Kansas University sophomore wing Brannen Greene, who was suspended for Saturday’s KU-Oklahoma game for irresponsible behavior, “should play,” in the Big 12 tournament, KU basketball coach Bill Self said Monday.
“Brannen practiced (Monday), which he does every day. He needs to take care of his business. I’m excited for him. His attitude is very good," Self said on his radio show, Hawk Talk.
"There would have to be a setback for him not to (play). He’s been good since I told him (he was suspended). Certainly he needs to keep handling his business."
Kansas basketball coach Bill Self speaks with media members about this week's Big 12 Tournament, March Madness and much more during a Monday afternoon press conference.
Earlier Monday, on Andy Katz’s ESPN podcast, Self stated: “It was a one-game suspension as long as he did what he’s supposed to do. Hopefully he’ll be on time, make it to class, do what everybody else is required to do. If he does that, no reason why he shouldn’t play. I think it will be better for him in the long run and for us to have some kind of hit right between the eyes and say, ‘We need you on all fronts, not just on the court.’’’
