Selby pays fine, must miss nine games

Kansas freshman point guard Josh Selby must sit out nine regular-season games and pay a fine for accepting impermissible benefits prior to his signing, the NCAA ruled Friday.

The 6-foot-3 Selby, the No. 1 recruit in the nation, has already missed three games. The NCAA, in an announcement released during No. 7 Kansas' 93-60 victory over North Texas, also said the Baltimore native must pay a fine of $5,757.58. But Kansas said the true amount was $4,607.58.

The main issues surrounding Selby apparently centered around his family's association with Robert Frazier, the business manager for Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony. Selby's mother had maintained that Frazier was someone she had known since grade school and that he merely helped the family through the difficult recruiting process as a friendly adviser.

Now the playmaking point guard will make his debut Dec. 18 at home against Southern California. His presence could greatly strengthen an already powerful team.
