Without even playing a single minute on the season, guard Josh Selby will make his debut on Saturday against USC, but what role with the freshman have? Is Bill Self ready to hand the keys over to the Jayhawks' high-octane offense that's already running smoothly? The standards have been set high and keep getting higher and higher as we get each day closer to the 18th. But what can we realistically expect?
We've seen the crafty guard quite a number of times in high school and on the AAU circuit and Kansas and basketball fans across the nation have a lot to look forward to. He's an athletic guard, who is tremendous with the ball in his hands. He has the "killer instinct" and is always looking to score the basketball- slashing through the lane and finishing above the rim or showing off his deep range on his jump shot.
Selby has been working with the first-team at practice, but Coach Self has said he doesn't think that he will start the freshman. Kansas has a glut of talented guards, including point guard Tyshawn Taylor, so it's most likely that Selby will be playing mostly off the ball this weekend. That being said, he will spell Taylor at the point, showing off his point guard skills to fans and NBA scouts.
