Another off-the-court incident sidelines KU's Billy Preston vs

Ux5lwac13dr8vvbznt9o

Kansas freshman Billy Preston will not play against Kentucky in the State Farm Classic as the school looks into a auto accident he was involved in over the weekend.

"On Saturday, Billy was involved in a single-vehicle incident on campus", KU cocach Bill Self said in a statement released about an hour before tip-off.

It appears while there were no injuries from the single-car accident, there are questions about where Preston acquired the auto. "The administration determined that we needed a clearer financial picture specific to the vehicle".

KU's decision Tuesday night to not dress Preston for the team's Champions Classic game against Kentucky appears to be part of the new normal in college basketball.

The opah Ensor and his friends caught might be one of the only ones ever caught in Ocean City by a non-commercial fishing boat. According to the Gulf of Marine Research Institute, the fish can be found in open waters in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

And if it turned out that there was something untoward about the financial picture on this vehicle, that could wind up rendering Billy Preston ineligible to play, and would raise the possibility that games in which he did play would later have to be forfeited. Self described him as "disappointed and crushed" to learn he would not face Kentucky. "We hope to have the situation resolved as soon as possible".

"Preston issued two tweets around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the first simply reading "Wow" and the second stating "(Shaking my head) people love trying to see me fail".

The highly-recruited Preston missed Friday's season-opening win against Tennessee State after he missed curfew and didn't attend class on Friday.
