LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Tyshawn Taylor, a sophomore guard on the
Kansas basketball team, was treated at a hospital Tuesday night after being injured in a scuffle among athletes, The Associated Press has learned.
A person close to the situation says Taylor was treated for an injury to his hand that may sideline him for 4-6 weeks. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school's inquiry into the incident was not complete.
Taylor is expected to be a major part of a Jayhawks team that will enter the season with lofty expectations. He was Kansas' third-leading scorer as a freshman, averaging almost 10 points per game.
The Lawrence Journal-World first reported on the injury. It said the scuffle involved both football and basketball players.
