The Kansas Jayhawks returned from Washington, D.C., where they attended the funeral of Thomas Robinson's mother. Robinson and his younger sister stayed behind but he will return on Friday and will suit up against Kansas State at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday.
Bill Self spoke after returning from Washington, D.C. (via KUSports.com):
"We all want what's best for Thomas and obviously for his little sister," Self said. "But she has a father and family back home. Thomas obviously, as the big brother, would love to have her here. But that's a family decision. And they're going to have to decide what's best for Jayla."
This has certainly been an emotional week for Kansas so we'll see what kind of shape they're in on Saturday against Kansas State.
Kansas plays Kansas State at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday.
