Kansas University on Thursday reached out to high-scoring Delaware sophomore Kory Holden, CBS analyst Jeff Borzello reports. Holden, a 6-2, 180-pound point guard from Salisbury, Md., averaged 17.7 points (off 39.4 percent shooting) with 126 assists against 88 turnovers for Delaware (7-23). He hit 69 of 178 threes for 38.8 percent. He would have to sit out next season in accordance with transfer rules. Maryland, Miami, South Carolina, USC, Seton Hall, Arizona and Virginia Tech reportedly are interested.
It was a joke, folks: Terrance Ferguson, a 6-5 senior shooting guard from Dallas Advanced Prep, said on Twitter he’d announce his college choice at 8 p.m. Friday. It turned out to be an April Fool’s joke on those who follow recruiting. No decision yet. Analysts believe Arizona leads KU, Baylor, Maryland and North Carolina State.
National champs: KU’s men’s basketball managers beat Michigan State, 44-42, in Friday’s first-ever managers national title game in Houston. Iowa State and Tennessee also competed. KU beat Iowa State, 47-25, in the Final Four semifinals.
