The Kansas Jayhawks announced on Thursday night that senior guard Lagerald Vick will be stepping away from the program effective immediately. No other details were announced.
Also, it is not clear if he will return to the program by the end of the season, or the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
“Lagerald has some personal matters that require his immediate attention and he will be taking a leave of absence from our team,” Self said. “During his time, we will respect Lagerald’s privacy. There is no timetable for his return.”
The 22-year-old Memphis, Tennessee native made 23 appearances, including 20 starts this season. He is averaging a career-best 14.1 points with 4.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.17 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game.
He was the second-leading scorer on the team. Dedric Lawson leads the team with 19.4 points per game.
Vick last played against the Kansas State Wildcats. He had seven points in the Jayhawks 74-67 loss on Feb. 5. at Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kansas.
He was the third-leading scorer in this game, as Lawson had 18 points and Devon Dotson had 13 points.
The seven-point performance snapped his eight-game double-digit streak, which was the longest of the season. The last time he scored fewer than 10 points was when he had six points against the Iowa State Cyclones.
