LAWRENCE, KS -- Kansas guard Mario Little is going to play out the season instead of applying for a medical hardship because of injuries that caused him to miss the first 12 games.
Kansas coach Bill Self said in a news release that Little told
him about his decision Tuesday morning.
The junior made his first appearance of the season Jan. 3
against Tennessee, recording five rebounds and two assists in 10
minutes. He played five minutes against Sienna on Jan. 6 and was on
the floor for seven minutes against Michigan State on Saturday
before fouling out.
Little is the 2008-09 Big 12 Preseason Newcomer of the Year. He
broke his hand in practice Dec. 16, less than two weeks after he
returned from a stress fracture in his left leg.
