Lawrence Journal World: Kansas University freshman Brandon Rush backed up the words he uttered after KU's defeat to Bradley last month, saying Tuesday that he would indeed return for his sophomore season instead of leaving Lawrence for the NBA draft.
"I'm still staying," Rush told reporters, after winning team MVP honors at KU basketball's postseason awards banquet held at the Kansas Union.
"I feel pretty good about it," said Rush -- who said he was eager to return for a chance to win a national championship, despite learning that he would likely be a late first or early second round pick.
Jayhawk coach Bill Self, who provided Rush with information from NBA sources on his likely draft status, was once again happy to hear Rush reiterate that he would return for his sophomore campaign. "That's great news," Self said.
