Kansas holds Preston out of Kentucky game after car accident

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - No. 4 Kansas is holding Billy Preston out of Tuesday's game against No. 7 Kentucky because he was involved in a single-car accident, another round of trouble for the freshman forward.

Benched for the opener against Tennessee State because he missed both curfew and class, he found out just before the pregame meal that he wasn't playing against Kentucky, either. Coach Bill Self says in a statement that Preston was involved in a "single-vehicle incident" on campus on Saturday. He says no one was hurt, but Preston's car was damaged.

Self says the administration "determined that we needed a clearer financial picture specific to the vehicle" and that the 6-foot-10 Preston will remain out "until the review is complete."
