Kansas' Jackson pleads guilty to misdemeanor for hitting car

  • Frank Jackson Duke

Duke's Frank Jackson, a well-regarded point guard in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft class, underwent right foot surgery and is expected to be fully recovered sometime in July. However, this season the team might do even better - despite the loss of Melo Trimble.

"If you're an National Basketball Association team, you may take him in the late first round, thinking future because of the ability to score", said ESPN's Fran Fraschilla about Jackson during the Combine.

Maryland forward Justin Jackson will return to school for his sophomore season after testing the NBA Draft waters this spring, the Terps announced May 24. "The experience that I had participating in the NBA Scouting Combine will be beneficial in my long-term development".

Jackson was in Toronto to work out for the Raptors on Tuesday, on the eve of the deadline for early-entry candidates to withdraw.

Jackson opened the season with double-digit points in his first eight games at Duke a year ago. "I can't wait to get back to College Park and begin workouts with my teammates this summer".

United States stock futures, dollar fall on rising concerns over Trump
Expectations of a rate increase in June fell to 74 percent compared to 84 percent last week, according to the CME Fedwatch. US crude fell 0.49 percent to $48.61 per barrel and Brent was last at $51.62, down 0.39 percent on the day.

"We are excited Justin is returning for his sophomore season", Turgeon said. He scored 17 points off the bench in the team's second game, an emotional, come-from-behind win over Georgetown at Verizon Center in Washington.

Jackson's potential to fit into the first two slots - perhaps immediately - is just one of the many reasons Fraschilla believes KU's freshman All-American is so highly coveted and sits on the brink of a long pro career.

Kansas coach Bill Self suspended Jackson for one game during the Big 12 tournament in March due to the incident. Jackson also had some impressive games down the stretch, scoring double-digits in three of the team's final six games.

Jackson, who is 6-foot-4, averaged 10.9 points and 1.7 assists for the Blue Devils.
