A Fort Hays State University scholarship offer didn’t tempt hometown hero Jordan Juenemann, nor did overtures from various other NCAA Div. II teams and junior colleges in Kansas.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Jordan Juenemann resembled a true scholarship athlete in exploding for a career-high seven points off 3-of-3 shooting (1-for-1 from three) while playing the final four minutes of an 83-50 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday. He was one of nine KU players to score on a night the bench chipped in 31 points.
