LAWRENCE, KS (KCTV) -

Kansas Jayhawks freshman Billy Preston will not play in Tuesday night's game against Kentucky. 

Head coach Bill Self said the decision was made following a single-vehicle incident on campus last weekend. 

In a statement, Self said the "administration determined that we needed a clearer financial picture specific to the vehicle." 

Self added the university will continue to do so until "the review is complete." 

Full statement: 

“On Saturday, Billy was involved in a single-vehicle incident on-campus,” Self said. “There were no injuries but Billy’s car sustained damage. After I learned about the incident, I reported it to our administration. The administration determined that we needed a clearer financial picture specific to the vehicle, we decided to hold him out of tonight’s game and will continue to do that until the review is complete.”

“Billy was informed right before our pre-game meal,” Self said. “Needless to say he was disappointed and crushed. He was very excited to make his KU debut. We hope to have the situation resolved as soon as possible.”
