A change of plans for former UW basketball player

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Former Wisconsin guard Kobe King has changed his plans and won’t be playing basketball at Nebraska.

Cornhuskers coach Fred Hoiberg said in a statement Friday that King had informed the staff that he wouldn’t be enrolling at the school because of personal reasons.

Hoiberg added that “we respect his decision and wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

King started his career at Wisconsin but left the Badgers in late January.

The 6-foot-4 guard from Central High School had made 19 starts and was averaging 10 points to rank second on the team at the time he left.
