Ben McLemore has returned to practice after an ankle sprain and the leading scorer for No. 4 Kansas expects to play at Texas on Saturday.
Jayhawks coach Bill Self said Thursday that McLemore is "going to be close to 100 percent" against the Longhorns (8-8, 0-3 Big 12). The freshman is averaging 16.4 points, second best in the Big 12.
McLemore hurt his right ankle during the 61-44 victory over Baylor on Monday night. Self said that McLemore did some shooting on his own during practice on Wednesday, but he was expected to return to full practice on Thursday for Kansas (15-1, 3-0).
