Kansas freshman forward Billy Preston discusses his role, adjusting to the college level


After scoring 17 points in Wednesday's camp scrimmage at Horejsi Center, Kansas freshman forward Billy Preston talked about his role of playing in the paint and on the perimeter.

"Coach (Bill) Self in practice don't let me take any breaks," Preston said. "Any time I'm just roaming around the perimeter, any time I find myself doing that, he's the first to say something to me, get me in a position he needs or he feels would be best for the team."

Preston showcased all parts of his game Wednesday, hitting a 3-pointer, mid-range jumpers and driving to the rim for dunks.

After a quiet performance in last week's scrimmage, he admitted he made it a focus for himself to play better.

"Last week, I was kind of nervous," Preston said. "First time playing with the guys, playing against the alumni. I didn't play so well, but this following week, I made a commitment to myself to play harder and better."
