Giddens is no longer a Jayhawk

As you all should have expected by now, J.R. Giddens is leaving the KU basketball program:


Kansas guard J.R. Giddens is leaving the program, a month after the junior was stabbed during a bar fight.

Giddens, the Jayhawks' top returning scorer, is recovering from a knife wound he sustained in Lawrence last month.

"We've talked numerous times about this and basically last night, we came to the conclusion together that it was in his best interests and our best interests to part ways and go in different directions," coach Bill Self said Thursday.

Self said Giddens will transfer, but has not decided on a new school.

Giddens and five others were injured in a fight outside the Moon Bar on May 19. An artery in Giddens' right calf was cut and the wound required 30 stitches.

Police have received conflicting accounts from those involved and witnesses about what led to the altercation.

"We have responsibility as players here to wear the uniform with pride and understand the responsibility that goes along with wearing the uniform," Self said.


Bravo, Coach Self. Every program should have this attitude.

  • Yes, they should. Unfortunately, too many schools put sports before academics, and the athletes before everyone else.

    Unlike some other schools, the University of Phoenix Online focuses on Team Learning. For all classes, team assignments can make up to 20% of the student’s total grade. Consequently, students get more than they bargained for when pursuing an education at Phoenix’s online university (UoP online). Find detailed discussion on
