Jayhawks' Vick announces he will return

By The Associated Press
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Lagerald Vick has decided to return to Kansas for his senior season, nearly three months after he declared his intentions to play professionally and the Jayhawks had seemingly moved on.
Vick and Kansas coach Bill Self announced the decision in a statement Friday night.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard averaged 12.1 points and 4.8 rebounds last season, when he started 35 of 39 games for a team that reached the Final Four. Vick declared for the NBA draft on April 6, and while he never hired an agent, the Jayhawks recruited as if he would not be back with the team.
Vick went undrafted and decided to return to Kansas rather than pursue a pro career overseas.
He plans to rejoin the team next week, providing some experience to a youthful but crowded backcourt, and potentially creating a logjam for minutes for a team with national title aspirations.
