“He’s had the best year on our team to this point,” Self said. “He’s been the most consistent and best performer on our team. That’s pretty good when you really don’t have upperclassmen to teach you how to do it and you have all this expectation and hype. At least from the outside looking in, to me it looked like he had the weight of the world on his shoulders to start.”
“Jo and Andrew deserve the majority of the attention. I get that,” KU coach Bill Self said Thursday at his weekly news conference. “But it shouldn’t be lost, if we didn’t have those two, then obviously Wayne Selden would be used in a way where he could be strongly considered for Freshman of the Year in our league. There’s been a lot of years that there’s been a Freshman of the Year in our league that from a talent standpoint probably wasn’t superior to what we feel Wayne Selden is,” Self added.
“Wayne is getting it,” Self said. “Whether or not he’s making shots or not, he’s figuring out a way to impact the game, and he’s figuring out his role and the impact he can have and certainly taking a lot of pride on the defensive end. He’s played well.”
“I’m going to do what’s best for Kansas,’’ Self said. “I’m not concerned with what’s best for anybody else or doing something because it would be nice. Who cares about that? You want to do what’s best for your program, and that’s what we’ll always do.’’
