Two Jayhawks Leave Basketball Team

According to Kansas coach Bill Self, guards C.J. Henry and Chase Buford have left the Kansas Jayhawk basketball team.

Henry, brother to former Jayhawk Xavier Henry, averaged 5.6 minutes and 3.1 points in his lone year in Lawrence.

"C.J. informed us toward the end of July that he was going to look into other options to further his basketball career," Self said. "At this date, I do not know if anything has officially been decided on what he will be doing or where he will be attending, but he has decided to leave KU. It's a decision I totally respect."

Buford had career averages of 1.7 minutes, 0.3 points and 0.5 rebounds per game.

"We, as coaches, have thoroughly enjoyed having Chase as a member of our program the last three years," Self said. "I totally understand -- this being his senior year and the time commitment involved -- that he wants to pursue some other interests and also enjoy being a normal college student for his final campaign."
