Kansas Freshmen To Decide NBA Futures

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen kept reminding his team all week about its trip to Kansas two years ago, when the lightly regarded Jayhawks stormed to a victory over the Mountaineers.
ST. LOUIS (AP) – After falling short in the NCAA tournament, a trio of Kansas players now faces the stay or go decision on the NBA that has been looming all season.
Andrew Wiggins is almost certain to leave for the pros. He’s projected as a lottery pick, perhaps first overall, even after a poor showing Sunday in a 60-57 loss to Stanford in the third round of the NCAA tournament.
Seven footer Joel Embiid is also a projected lottery pick. A back injury combined with soaring stock could leave Embiid and his handlers with no choice but to declare for the draft.
Shooting guard Wayne Selden could also declare for the draft, though he’s the most likely to return.
If any of them come back, Kansas could be well positioned for another March run next year.
