Mario Little Cleared To Play, Kansas Jayhawks Coach Bill Self Says

Kansas Jayhawks' Mario Little had been cleared to play after missing all KU games since his suspension on December 16th. Here's what Bill Self said:

"Mario has met the requirements off the court and has received a diversion agreement on the two misdemeanor battery charges," Self said. "He has not only met the requirements of the court but also the requirements of our basketball program. One of those stipulations is his receiving weekly counseling that will continue through the end of our basketball season.

"We as a program take the events of December 16th very seriously, Mario made mistakes and exercised poor judgment. We have let the legal process play out, and have been able to evaluate Mario in the last four weeks in a variety of ways, including counseling. We feel he should be allowed to rejoin our team for games."


It's sort of like with Josh Selby when he was suspended the first nine games of the season. Kansas was doing OK without him but his presence will make them better again.
